In the light of recent global COVID-19 epidemic and it’s impact on countries, communities, families and individuals, I have been reflecting on the plans we make in the midst of so much uncertainty in this world that we live in.No doubt at the beginning of this year, we all had plans for what we wanted to achieve.
