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!

Work in process...2 (also in the sandbox...)

Yesterday I went to Soroti hospital to the HIV clinic to get our monthly ARV medicines for all our HIV + children. I took those two pictures from the clinic. The building is going on well, the walls are there, also inside walls have been built up already. They made columns and next week they are building the ring beam. That will be done with iron bars and then it has to set for two weeks. After the two weeks they are going to build the roof. Everybody is excited about the building and is looking forward to the completion of the clinic. In the meantime is the clinic going on as usual. There is not much hinder from the building that is going on.

I had to go for medicines for 13 children. On the table in the front you see the pile of files, all from Amecet children. Last month I came with the children, they were all seen by the doctor, but yesterday I only came with their medical books and the doctor wrote in them and I got their medicines. I went home with a bag full of medicines. I call it a bag full of life, because the ARVs have brought life to our children. If I think back to the days we didn't have ARVs, the children were so sick and I know that most of them would not be alive today if they didn't had the ARV's, including my own 3 children! I thank God for ARVs!
And see here our three musketeers, working in the sandbox!!! There is sand everywhere and they even eat it!!! Left is Rafael, in the middle Charles and at the right Nelson. They are more mobile now and they love to be in the dirt, so they often escape and you see them moving around. They are so naughty and always go in places where they are not allowed. You have to have eyes everywhere. But it is normal for little boys, to be naughty and specially for Rafael it is a mayor development step that he is moving around and walking. So we do not complain!!
