Dear Chair,

Thank you so much for the wonderful message. For sure, the year 2020 was 
such a challenging year. We have lost our colleagues and relatives due 
to COVID-19. It is our prayer that, the protection of almighty God be 
with each one of us as we are approaching the year 2021.

Let us hope we will make it there and be ready to face it.
