President Ramkalawan has sent a message of congratulations to Mr Frederick Ladouceur-Despeville following his successful completion of a charity challenge to paddle around Mahé in a canoe, in less than a day to raise funds for the St Mary's Hospital on La Digue.
"Congratulations Frederick on the successful completion of the 'Push the limit' challenge for a very important cause, St Mary's Hospital on La Digue. This is the type of true determination and courage that our children should aspire to emulate. On behalf of the country and on my personal behalf I wish to convey our sincere appreciation and congratulations to you. Well done! You are an example to our youths."
