On behalf of the Government, the people of Seychelles and on my own behalf I wish to convey our profound appreciation to you for saving another tourist from drowning.

Very few people are willing to put their own lives in danger to save someone else, but on countless occasions, you actually took such risk.

Seychelles are immensely proud of your humbleness and readiness to assist others especially when another life is at stake. We are forever grateful for your contribution to your community and to the country. You are model citizen for our younger generation” said President Ramkalawan
