President Danny Faure visited the Beau Vallon and Bel Ombre districts this morning, marking the conclusion of his community outreach programme to all twenty six districts including those on Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. He has now seen firsthand the situation in all communities, and heard the suggestions and concerns of the people.

In the Bel Ombre district, the President visited residents living in overcrowded conditions, the newly built flats at Kashoggi Estate in need of more facilities such as common lighting and recreational areas, tourism establishments in the community, emergency homes, and the fishing port due for re-development.
Following the visit in both districts, the delegations met at the District Administration office for a meeting. President Faure thanked the district authorities and commended them for the good working relations he witnessed during his tour.
