I could write a book.....

I am working for more than 15 years in Amecet, but still there are situations which are so shocking and new to me...
Sunday evening the Police brought a little boy of 4 years old. It was late, so he got a bath, a meal and he was brought to bed, The next day more details came out.......
 He could tell us his name: Emmanuel. Via the Police we heard that he was stolen from his family in September 2016, by a lady. The lady left Soroti and took the boy with her. The real parents and the Police have been looking for him and they have done radio messages, but no body had seen him or her. Recently, she came back to Soroti, maybe she thought that people had forgotten about the whole case. But somebody recognized her and Emmanuel and the Police arrested her and brought Emmanuel to Amecet. Emmanuel was shy at first, but is now playing all over the place and our Social workers are together with the Police and the Probation Office to find his real family and to make sure that Emmanuel goes back to his real parents.
Today Simon got a phone call from an organization who asked if we could help and take 6 children...
Another sad story...The mother left them (or was send away???) the children stayed behind with the father and the grandmother. But also the father left, to a new girl friend (?) the children were left behind with the old grandmother. She really tried, but there was hardly food and this morning she put the six children on the bus to Soroti and told the driver that they would be picked there..... The bus arrived in the bus station, the children stepped down and found a place where they all sat on the floor. The Bus driver saw that and he felt for them, he saw that there was nobody to pick them. A lot of people gathered around them, that is how we found them....We helped them in our vehicle and drove to the Police. They wrote a statement and asked us to take them to Amecet. The organization who called us, is going to trace for their parents. the children were shy and quiet..
When we drove to Amecet, they started to talk and to laugh.. And here they stand in front of our home. The oldest is 12 years old and the youngest is almost 2 years old. He is carried by his oldest brother and he is not doing a step without him. There are 5 boys and one girl (second from left).All the children are malnourished. They were excited to be in Amecet. Elias had first a talk with them to explain why they were staying with us, after that they all got a bath and we found clothes for all of them. The oldest boy, told me, that he was very happy with his clothes and he said that everything was so nice and clean..... 
I saw two of them standing next to the toilet, they were amazed how that worked and they flushed  and flushed.... in the afternoon two of them got a fever, our nurse Deborah, took them all for testing and three of them ended up on medication for Malaria. It is a nice bunch of children and I can't understand that parents just leave them behind. We will see what will happen tomorrow.......
