On behalf of the Board and the Committee of Platform Zambia, I have to inform you that we have decided to cancel the Zambia Day 2021 that was > planned for April. In the autumn of 2021, we will review the situation with regard to public health safety.
There are several reasons for this:
1) Meetings on a larger scale are not yet allowed by the Dutch
government due to the Corona virus and it is unclear and unlikely that this will be allowed in April 2021.
2) International traffic is limited, but visiting our Zambia Day is
certainly not one of them. Due to the Corona virus, the invited Zambians living in Belgium would not be able to attend and that is one of our explicit aims.
3) The willingness of most of the board members of the Dutch Platform foundations to visit the Zambia Day will be nil, as long as the health signal is not green.
The board and the Committee still believe, that we as Platform Zambia organize the annual Zambia Day especially for you. We therefore sincerely hope that it will be possible to welcome you again in the autumn of 2021 on our Zambia Day in September or October, so that together we can once again realize a beautiful and exciting Zambia Day.
As a committee we have not yet decided to hold this day in Eindhoven or at least as in previous years in Amersfoort. In addition to the availability of one of the two schools, this also depends on the
interest from Belgium.

With best regards,
Arlet Splint, Secretary Platform Zambia.
