SR. GERTRUDE LEMMENS
" Dar ul Sukun originated as a home for the abandoned children with disabilities. It was founded on 17th February 1969 by a Dutch nun, Sr. Gertrude Lemmens who came to Pakistan as a visitor in her full youth. She was so much touched by the pathetic condition of children with disabilities, who were found on street corners and rescued from the garbage dump in city. In Pakistan, she devoted her life for the care of such children, which were brought in by social workers, police and relatives. Her selfless love and affection turned it into a glaring reality, and a philanthropic organization Dar ul Sukun came into being. "
From the heart of suffering we can draw inspiration which characterizes my story of tally devoting career to the people we serve.
