She also founded the National Leprosy Control Programme in different areas of Pakistan and was also head of the Marie Adelaide Society of Pakistan (MASP).
Pfau, who was known locally as Pakistan's Mother Teresa, came to the southern port city of Karachi in 1960 and spent half a century taking care of some of the country's sickest and poorest people.
Dr Pfau's dead body was shifted to Marie Adelaide Leprosy Centre (MALC) from Holy Family Hospital of Karachi, few hours ago and from where it was shifted to St. Peter's Church at 11 am. She attributed her desire to become a doctor and a healer to this experience.
Thanks to the work of Pfau and her center, in 1996, Pakistan was able to bring leprosy under control - one of the first Asian countries to do so. After witnessing the plight of leprosy patients, she made a decision to settle here.
Ainee Shehzad, a member of the MALC board of trustees who worked with Pfau for 25 years, told CNN that she was "one of the most inspirational" people she had ever met. In 1989, she was presented the Hilal-i-Pakistan, the country's second-highest civilian award.
Dr Ruth wrote four books in German about her contribution in Pakistan.
