Peggy Vidot, Seychelles’ Health Minister and Principal Secretary, expressed her profound gratitude to President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for generously providing humanitarian aid to her nation. In this exclusive statement to the Emirates News Agency (WAM), she also lauded the benevolent efforts of H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, known as the “Mother of the Nation,” and H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler’s Representative in the Al Dhafra Region.

UAE’s Humanitarian Aid

The UAE’s generous humanitarian aid has been instrumental in bolstering Seychelles’ well-being. This aid signifies the strong bond between the two nations, demonstrating the UAE’s commitment to global welfare.

Inauguration of La Digue Hospital

Minister Vidot conveyed her gratitude for the UAE’s remarkable initiative in constructing a new hospital on La Digue Island, her place of birth. This inauguration marks a monumental achievement for Seychelles, enhancing healthcare accessibility for residents.

Importance of Quality Healthcare

Minister Vidot stressed the importance of early healthcare interventions, particularly in prenatal and early childhood stages. These interventions positively influence the health and quality of life of both mothers and children, impacting outcomes throughout life.

Enhanced Healthcare Services

The previous hospital on La Digue Island, constructed 75 years ago, was antiquated and ill-equipped to meet modern healthcare needs. Thanks to the UAE’s support, residents no longer need to travel to Mahé or Praslin for healthcare services. The new hospital offers an array of healthcare and treatment services, including surgical procedures, meeting the island’s healthcare requirements.

Impact on Tourism

Minister Vidot emphasized that the new hospital will support tourism on the island. Authorities can now provide treatment and care to tourists and residents of Praslin Island who need healthcare services. This development augments the island’s attractiveness as a tourist destination.

Gratitude from La Digue Residents

The residents of La Digue Island extend their profound gratitude to the UAE Government and the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) for their unwavering support in establishing the new hospital. This modern facility supersedes the deficiencies of the former government hospital, fortifying the local healthcare sector and enhancing overall well-being.
