Mp Buncamper: Do Not Lose Hope In Your Country.

As the year 2020 comes to an end and we move into 2021 most of us have mixed feelings about what we have been through and what we are about to go into. 2020 has undoubtedly been a very challenging year for all of us here and around the world. The Corona Virus, or COVID 19 as it is commonly referred to, has had its effects on our lives, our way of life and our customs.

To those of you who have lost family, friends, colleagues due to the pandemic, I extend my deepest sympathy and I pray that God will grant you the strength as you go through these challenging times.
The feeling of hopelessness is more common than we can imagine, many are even on the verge of giving up because of the uncertainties the pandemic has brought with it for our health, the health of our nation and our ability to recover economically from the devastating consequence of the pandemic.

But these challenges that our country is now facing, albeit the greatest economic challenges in recent times, will pass Read more

PHILIPSBURG:--- Peridot Foundation states: the final days of the year 2020 are slowly waning away to an end. We look back to a year marked by hardship and fear.

Desperate and often disillusioned by the failure of their leaders who pledged to serve in the best interest of all, some people rightfully feel let down and betrayed.

The state of mental health of society in general as well as for individuals who have been under extreme pressure for some time is harrowing Read more
