5 new born baby's....

It has been so busy, the last weeks, that I hardly got time to write the blog. We also had serious internet problems, but it seems to be fixed here we go!!!
Five new born baby's in the last 12 days. Five beautiful baby's with 5 sad stories. Honestly, Janneke and I said to ourselves, after loosing two precious baby's (blog of Feb. 22 and March 8) for now, no more new little baby's!!! But what do you do when they are on your doorstep?? You take them in and care for them!!
From left to right:
On March 7 a police officer came to Amecet, carrying a baby boy. He was found in a carton box, still connected with the placenta, in Kumi market. We called him Jonathan, his head is a bit out of shape, but for the rest he is fine. Up till today, there is no news from the police about his mother.
On March 8, Anna Grace was brought. Her mother started to bleed after giving birth and she passed away. She has 8 brothers and sisters! This was the same day that baby Kave died in Amecet, it was a strange day, death at one side and a small new born baby, Life, at the other side.
Moses was brought on March 10. His mother went into labour, but it didn't progress and they tried to find transport to the hospital. When they found that, the mother was so tired, that they had to do a Cesarean on her when she arrived  in the hospital. She passed away directly after the operation.
Then the fourth baby is baby Promise. She was brought yesterday. Her mother went into labour, in the hospital. But after the delivery the mother started to bleed. They tried all they could, but all was in vain. She died, her last words were that the name of the baby was Promise.
And today baby Martin came into Amecet. He is born at home, in the village, but  the placenta didn't come out, so they tried to get a vehicle to bring her to hospital. The mother passed away before they found the vehicle. 
Five precious little baby's are brought into our trust, we will care, love and feed them.
Tomorrow we are going to hand over a Anastasia/monitor machine to Soroti Hospital. It will be used for the emergency operations and the Cesarean operations. We hope to help to save the lives of the mothers of Teso. I´ll write more about this tomorrow.
