    Thank you CCF, for finally recognizing the yeomen service and sacrifices of Alfred D'Souza who without seeking any returns, had struggled for the progress and upliftment of our community, not just in Fujairah but wherever he went in his career. He is a role model for all of us. Continue highlighting the good works of champions, role models so that others get inspired.
    Alfred on his part, has continued his mission here in Mangalore, more aggressively than before, in that sense, Fujairah's loss is Mangalore's gain.
