From the desk of Paul Momsen
I trust you are well where you receive this message.
The school holidays in March marks the end of the financial year for AKB. Although we will most likely end the year with a moderate loss, our Lord blessed us on countless occasions with the support of our donors and friends.
Of course, this year has been influenced significantly by the Covid19 pandemic. I am eternally grateful that relatively few of our beneficiaries and colleagues fell seriously ill. I am also grateful to everyone that got vaccinated, contributing enormously to our ability to operate relatively normally.
We are all currently very aware of the devastating effect of the war in the Ukraine. Thousands of people, including children are being wounded, maimed, killed and displaced. We can only pray for an end of this unethical war driven by people with no regard for ordinary people.
I would like to congratulate Kuphela Baduza, Morgan Mahala and Ernesta Teessen on their promotions that came into effect on 1 April 2022. As new leaders at Maria Kloppers, Emdeni Skills Centre and the Marketing Department. I pray that you will support them enthusiastically in their new roles.
Thank you for reading this message. I trust that somewhere in here, you find something that will inspire you to live and work with gratitude and purpose.
