Today was Women's Day. So it is a good opportunity to honor the Women in Amecet!! We had cake and soda and a small gift of appreciation for each of them. We thanked them for the good job they do. It is very busy at the moment, many baby's and then four toddlers who are all very mobile and do all kinds of things you do not want them to do!!!
Here we (they) are singing the National Women song. Very serious!!!
Helen and Josh helped me to make all the hearts on the little presents (soap + airtime)
We are thankful for the work the aunties do in Amecet, we can't run the place without them. We have struggles, but we see so many children do so much better now:
Richard was left behind in a garden. He is gaining every week and we see progress in him.
The premature born twins, Martha and Mary are two little healthy ladies! They will go home next week!
Of course there are also children who are giving us worries, Gabdesia is still very sick, Janneke takes her every week to a counsellor in the Hospital, she seems to have given up to fight for her life, then we have two babies who are not gaining and struggling, on and off on IV drip, We have two children on a NG feeding tube, but we do see that our work makes a different. And the aunties are doing a big part of the work. And if we are a bit down, we look at Thomas, Richard, Martha and Mary or we look at our four toddlers, who are every day in for a naughty joke!
