Substantial Donation Received by WOSA

In memory the first anniversary of WOSA's founding member Bill Mincher's passing on 17 June 2019, his daughter Jane Kratz has donated and amount of R 60,000.00 to WOSA this past Wednesday the 17th of June 2020.

The money is to be used for the planning and execution of WOSA6 - the next Wild Orchids Southern Africa Conference. As a result of the COVID19 pandemic this has been postponed to tentatively take place in the spring of 2021.

The executive committee of WOSA is extremely grateful for this donation. Jane and some of the WOSA members put a lot of work into raising the R 60,000.00.

Amidst the pandemic WOSA Executive Chairman Marinus Kort and WOSA president Karsten Wodrich briefly met up with Jane for the official handover of the donation.
