From the Director’s Desk, November 2020

Despite the many times we felt like giving up, we have made it to the end of the year! Wishing you and your family a happy and safe festive season.

Can you believe it – we have made it to the end of the year! When I think back on all the director’s messages I have written for this year’s newsletters, and how many of them urged us all to keep on going, I am reminded of just how much we have overcome during 2020. And while we all know that Covid-19 is not going to magically disappear in 2021, I know that I am not alone in hoping – and believing – that the strength and resilience we have built through all our trials will help us all make the coming year a better one.

Thanks to every one of you, our MIWA members, for standing by us. And congratulations, too – this year, you have truly shown what you are made of.

We wish you all a very happy festive season. May you and your families be safe and happy and I look forward to starting a new year afresh with you.

Pieter Niemand, MIWA National Director
