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!

120 gram in 5 days!!!!!!

This is Patrick, he is the second baby of triplets. When he was born, his weight was 900 gram! His brother and sister weighed much more. We think he must have been squeezed in between his brother and sister.
But Patrick is a survivor, instead of being put in an incubator, his mother took the 3 babies to their hut in the village. And Patrick survived!! When the babies were 7 weeks old, the mother came to Amecet asking for help. She didn't have enough breastfeeding for the three and she was too busy with the three of them + the 6 other children at home. When they came, Patrick was 7 weeks old and his weight was 1560 gram.

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!)
