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.

Amecet HEROES day..

Uganda celebrate their national Heroes day on June 9th. In Soroti is a gathering and there is marching done by the police, soldiers and security guards. There are speeches and they are remembering the heroes who have been helping building the nation Uganda. It is a public holiday.

Amecet has no holidays, there are always children to feed, change and care for. So we felt we celebrate the Amecet Heroes Day. We all came together on the veranda, from our two houses, and thanked our staff for the work and spoke out our appreciation. They are the heroes of Amecet, they help building our Ministry. Lately several staff left, due to studies, pregnancy, or personal reasons, we have been getting new staff, but it is hard on the "old time staff"who have to work in the new ones all the time. So this time we especially wanted to honor the "old timers", as our Heroes and we gave them a little gift as appreciation.

With a soda and home backed cookies (by the Amun children) it was a nice time.

  1. Hallo aan het hele team,
    wat fijn om te lezen dat het zo goed met Simon en William gaat. Fantastisch. En hoe mooi om te zien hoe leuk Catherine her verjaardag mag vieren. Het foto is echt een plaatje. Jullie allen een gezegend Pinksteren en Gods zegen.
