NEWSLETTER AUTUMN 2020
Dear member

Who could have imagined the pandemic we are currently experiencing? Ironically, experts have been warning world leaders for years that such a pandemic was inevitable, but with little success.

When the crisis hit our shores, our President fortunately acted more swiftly than most other world leaders, instituting a lockdown, well before we had a significant death rate. We are hopeful that these measures will help ‘flatten the curve’ and allow our healthcare system to handle the outfall of COVID-19, and encourage each and every member to play his/her part in this endeavour.

Stay safe, and know that the Scheme is here for you!
