- Amecet n'ainapakin (Shelter of Peace) is a ministry of Youth With A Mission (YWAM)in Soroti, Uganda. We are reaching out to HIV infected and affected children. We also are caring for new born babies, who lost their mother after the delivery. The third group of children we help, are children who need a safe place, they mostly come via the police. In this blog we want to share with you our stories, our pictures, our needs and blessings!

It was almost 1.30 pm when we came back in Amecet, hungry and thirsty, the water we took was long finished, and I didn't trust the juice in the plastic bags, so now the posho and beans were tasting great!

Today, it is Sunday, and that is in Amecet: Weighing day. All the children are being weighed and recorded on the list. Patrick has gained 120 gram in lees then 5 days! We are happy. He is our smallest baby, but he has a loud voice!! He lets us know when he wants to drink!
When he is 2 kgs, we will celebrate it in Amecet with a soda at supper time!! (I'll let you know!)

Today we got a new boy in Amecet! His name is Paul and he is 8 months old. I couldn't believe that, he just looks like a new born baby, his weight is only 2,6 kg. A child of 8 months is around 7,5 kg. So is very malnourished. He had fever as well. Both of his parents died of AIDS, his mother died just 2 weeks ago. Leaving 8 children behind. Two of them are married and the oldest sister (22 years) took 6 of her siblings in her home. Her husband agreed, but his family is not happy with the situation. In Uganda the wife goes to the family of the husband, they pay a brideprice for her in cows. We took Paul into our home, took him to the doctor and we are going to test him for HIV/AIDS as well. He has sores in his mouth, but we pray he is HIV-, that will be so good!!!
