A Tribute To The Rescuers And Volunteers Of The Thailand Cave Rescue Operation

The world should be celebrating the voluntarism, humility and the spirit of ubuntu demonstrated by all the volunteers, navy Seals and the divers for their selfless efforts to successfully rescue all the 12 boys and the coach.

A daring rescue mission in the treacherous confines of a flooded Thai cave saved all 12 boys and their soccer coach who were trapped deep within the labyrinth. It ended a grueling, 18-day ordeal that claimed the life of an experienced volunteer diver and riveted people around the world.

Thailand’s Navy SEALs, who were central to the rescue effort, said on their Facebook page that the remaining four boys and their 25-year-old coach were all brought out safely Tuesday. Eight of the boys were rescued by a team of Thai and international divers on Sunday and Monday.

“We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what. All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave,” the SEALs said, referring to the name of the boys’ soccer team. “Everyone is safe.”

Whether it was a miracle or not, the world should be celebrating the voluntarism, humility and the spirit of ubuntu demonstrated by all the volunteers, navy Seals and the divers for their selfless efforts to successfully rescue all the 12 boys and the coach.

Here is a picture tribute to some of the heroes.
