    Dear Goran and Maarten,

    I would like to send my personal & community appreciation and thanks to 
    ICANN Org and the Board for the arrangements made in relation to health 
    and safety for participants in ICANN meetings..

    I have had a surgical operation done after my tibia was fractured more 
    than two months ago and have been accessed fit to travel by the doctors 
    in Mauritius. I am at KL Conference Centre attending ICANN75.

    Yesterday, my left foot was swollen and I could hardly walk as it was 
    paining too much. I went to the health and safety office, setup for the 
    purpose at ICANN75. I was attended by a paramedic officer named Michael 
    Watson of Gaboon. I would say that I am really thrilled by the service 
    provided by this gentleman. He consulted me and advised that I should be 
    sent to the hospital for investigation . He called the Prince Court 
    Medical Centre as well an International SOS insurance company. His 
    approach was so professional that he took care of the travel from the 
    conference centre to the medical centre, talked to the doctor and 
    liaised with the insurance company. He even took the medicines from the 
    pharmacy. While I was still at the hospital, he got another patient from 
    ICANN75 and did the same follow up for him.

    After the consultation, investigation and medication from the medical 
    centre, the gentleman called the transport and we returned to the hotel 
    at around 09:30 PM.

    I was not aware that ICANN has made such an arrangement to ensure the 
    health and safety of the participants until my experience of yesterday. 
    This really ease the lives of participants.

    Thank you very much.

    With kind regards
