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!

Greetings from the Netherlands..

This blog is written from Holland! I have not written in a week, because I was busy getting ready for our family trip to the Netherlands. I had the opportunity because of Petra, the Dutch nurse, to take this time and go with my 4 girls for a Christmas holiday in the Netherlands. After the Amun week I have been busy to get everything organised for Petra. In between the packing and also organising my house.  Helen, my daughter of 7, wanted to pack every day and what she packed than, were T-shirts and cotton dresses!! She is also praying for snow, which was there the previous week, but there is no snow now. It is cold, at the airport, they brought us jackets and coats, so here we are!!!
 At the back Sarah (left) and Mary and at the front Helen (left) and Catherine.
And this is this morning, walking to church, we have to take at least 10 extra minutes to dress, the girls complain about all the clothes they have to put on before going outside!!!

Everything in Amecet is going well, Four children went home this week, back to their relatives, they are all stable and well. We were pretty full, so there is space again. At the other side, we have not so much personnel, half of the team is free with Christmas and the other half of the team is free with New Year. I pray there will not be any very sick child during those days. So the next blogs will be written from Holland, but we have contacts with Amecet.


  1. Fijne tijd in Holland! Ik hoop op een beetje sneeuw voor jullie, dat maakt het wel echt hè!

  2. Geweldig dat jullie er zijn, een gezegende tijd met iedereen die van jullie houden
