2019

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
