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!
Two weeks ago we finished giving out bulls, cows, ploughs and orange trees to several families in the village. When HIV+ children go back to their relatives, often they go to their grandmothers, mostly their parents have died of AIDS. We visit the children regularly and we try to encourage and help them a bit. We received a gift from EO Metterdaad , Stichting de Figurant (both from Holland) gave some as well and we were able to bring 27 ploughs, 21 bulls, 5 cows and 170 orange trees to 34 families in the villages. They were all families who are caring for HIV+ children. It was so good to see the joy and the thankfullness . Some of the grandmothers started to dance!! On the pictures you can see Alex' grandmother with the orange trees and Simon, who gives the bull to the aunti of Evelyn. In the picture below, you see how the grandmother of Emmanuel tries out the plough, Emmanuel has the orange trees in his hands. It has been a big blessing for the whole family! And it will help the family to provide for themselves.
