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!
Are they not beautiful? From left to right: Helen (6), Sarah (14), Mary (17) and Catherine (1,5)
Ella, one of the volunteers here made those beautiful pictures of the girls. I just had to share them with you.
They all do very well, Mary is now also living with us, she is part of the family! We know each other for many years, Mary was also one of the first children who came in Amecet. She is now going to a secondary school, a boarding school and in the holidays she comes to us. In February she will go to the second class.
It is now the summer holiday here, that means that the children are not going to school for two months. But they play well together, there is a group of 9 children all together in Amecet in the age group 6-12 years old, Helen is the youngest. Last week they were playing hair dresser, they were braiding each others hair. With blue wool!!!
