Culture is a Basic Need

Ruth Pfau Passes Away

Some time ago, a report was published about three German women, who worked selflessly in and for Pakistan and who even knew each other as well:

Annemarie Schimmel, the literary figure
Ruth Pfau, the doctor
Senta Siller, the designer, in the village of Thatta Ghulamka Dhiroka, she worked there in the Center for dolls and handicrafts

Annemarie Schimmel, born in 1922, died in 2003 in Germany, Honorary Crescent of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Is also honoured the Annemarie Schimmel House in Lahore.

Ruth Pfau, born in 1929, died in Pakistan on 10 August 2017, awarded Pakistani Order "Star of Quaid-i-Azam", honorary citizen of Pakistan, She will remain in the memory of the people through the Marie Adelaide Leprosy Center in Karachi.

Senta Siller, born in 1935, is still active in the neglected area of Handicrafts, which is the real strength of Pakistani culture. Let us hope that more official support is forthcoming in this area.

Traditional literature and its preservation, health care with traditional environmental and natural medicines and its spread, as well as traditional design and its preservation are examples of sustainable development and real capital of the country, which deserve support!
