Moses was picked by his auntie today. He is the baby on the picture with Sarah, on the blog from yesterday. We explained all the medication and I think the aunt understood. We will go and visit them soon in the village, to see how it goes.
Today a new baby arrived! It was a little girl, she was brought by her sister of 16 years and the probation officer from Kotido. That is a district in the North. The population is there mostly Karomajong, it is a tribe which lives as nomads. They are very poor and they live mostly from their cows. Both of the parents died this year. The mother passed away after giving birth, the father died 8 months ago.The 8 children are now on their own, the oldest girl is 18. The sister was wearing the tradional clothes and was wearing many bracelets around her arms and legs. She also had the decoration on her face. It is a sign of beauty. She told me that it is cut with a razorblade and safetypins.
The little baby is called Sabina (after the social worker) She weighs 2,4 kg and is 2 weeks old. She looks healthy, just a bit small.
This is our new leaders team of Amecet! At the front (left) sits Elias, then clockwise: Simon, Els, Janneke and Dominique. We all have a heart for children and we see that Amecet can really do something for children who are in trouble. I feel we are a good team and I I appreciate each one of my team members. I am looking forward to see what God wants to do with and through us.
It is going good with Doreen and her baby, we could take her back to Amecet on Friday. At first the baby kept on loosing weight, but since two days the baby is gaining again. It is not easy for Doreen, it is hard to handle her baby with one disabled arm and only 3 fingers at het other arm (hand). But she loves her baby and the feeding is going better and better. She needs still a lot of help with bathing and handeling her baby. She also gave the baby the name: Akello Else.....
