Special visitors in Amecet....

We started the year very well, our little baby Innocent is doing good, he even drinks by himself and we got special visitors today in Amecet! A while a go we met a lady, who studies  at the Flying school, here in Soroti. She has a foundation. called, Bambino foundation. She helps to fund raise for children homes like Amecet. She had been here to talk and she shared that she was working together this time with an organisation in Kampala, called Dorahmwima foundation. They had organized a celebrity football match in Kampala to raise funds for children homes...... and we were one of these homes!!!
Today they came driving from Kampala with a van full of stuff, they had asked us before, what kind of things we need and they bought it all!
 Everything was carried out of their van and put in front of our veranda. There was a photographer with them to take pictures.
The children  "helped" a lot, but had also a lot of fun, as you can see on this picture. There were so many things they brought: baby oil, baby powder, baby soap, milk formula, sugar, washing powder, diapers, buckets, cleaning mops, cleaning soap and more, all things we use daily!! Such a blessing!
We were able to share what we do and they were touch by the stories and the children. The lady at the left in this picture is Dorah, she started the Dorahmwima foundation, to support the babies and vulnerable children. She has been Miss Uganda in 2008 and has many connections. But they really have a compassion for children. I was touch by the fact that they came up from Kampala, which is a 7 hours drive, to give the items to Amecet. There are many children homes in Kampala, but they felt that they were to bless Amecet, up in Soroti!!
A very good start of 2016!!!
