President Faure met Dr. Balaji who was visiting Seychelles. On invitation from the Seychelles Government, Dr. Balaji has been performing surgeries, as a part of his voluntary humanitarian services, for children and adults suffering from skull and face deformities, at the Seychelles Govt. Hospital for almost 2 decades now. During the interaction President Faure thanked Dr. Balaji for his continued voluntary service to Seychellois as well as promised to improve the dental and maxillofacial healthcare facilities for better healthcare delivery. The President also recollected memories of his visit to Dr. Balaji’s hospital, Chennai, India, in 2014 when he was Vice-President.

Congratulating the President, Dr. Balaji greatly appreciated the President’s dynamic policies, commitment and vision in improving the healthcare system in the island making the infrastructure and expertise one of the best in the world.
