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!

Potty time in Amecet......

After the meal we always have our singing time, but as soon that is finished it is potty time!!! All the toddlers have their own potty and we put them all together on their potty. The children who are a bit strong, try to move around (which we do not really encourage), other just sit and some "talk" to each other. From left to right: Rafael (14 months), Gloria (3,5 years), Peter (2 years+ 3 months), Esther (17 months), Catherine (14 months) and Lois (17 months). Are they not cute?? They are all so special. At the moment we have several sick children with malaria, Lois, Esther, Peter, Christine 2 and Immaculate have on and off fevers. We have to be alert.

Today we had to go with some children for immunization in the hospital. The twin baby's if Simon and Josephine were also due for their immunization, they are 6 weeks today! So Josephine came with them to Amecet, we could go all together, that would be much faster for her, since they help the Amecet children always fast, because we have to come so often to the hospital. Before we went, we weigh them and look at the following pictures!!!!

The first picture was 6 weeks ago, they were weighing 3450, the next picture was today: 6230 gram!! Josephine did a great job, they are doing well and are almost too big for the scale!! On both pictures is Josephine at the left and Simon at the right.

This is Catherine, I wrote about her last week, that we had to take her back in Amecet, from the village. She was there so depressed and lethargic, but now she is her old self again, walking around the table, laughing and eating well. Sad that a 1 year old child can be depressed and "homesick"!
