Amecet n'ainapakin (Shelter of Peace) is a ministry of Youth With A Mission (YWAM)in Soroti, Uganda. We are reaching out to HIV infected and affected children. We also are caring for new born babies, who lost their mother after the delivery. The third group of children we help, are children who need a safe place, they mostly come via the police. In this blog we want to share with you our stories, our pictures, our needs and blessings!

The First Aid lesson continues..

Last week we got our first Aid lesson from Meri. today she gave us the second part of the First Aid which might be helpful in Amecet.
She talked about choking and what to do if an adult or a big child chokes (on a cow pea or so!!) Of course she had us practising on each other, which brought a lot of laughter!

Then she explained what to do when there is a baby choking and we practised on dolls. bears and monkeys.

Helen our trained patient from last week was there again and Meri explained how to do CPR and she also showed it with a baby (doll).
We had to practise that to on each other and later again on the dolls, bears and monkeys.
This is Amos, and that is the only ting we know from him. He was brought on Thursday by the police. Someone found him in town. We have tried to talk with him, but Amos is the only thing we know, he forgot his other name, doesn't know if he lives in Soroti or in the village. Where his parents are, how he came where he was found. The police did radio announcements, but no response. We took him to the doctor, he had malaria, but he is doing fine now and he is very  good friends with Josh and John. We hope someone knows him and we can unite him with his family. It is a real sweet boy, we think he is around 6 years old. I love his beautiful smile .

I started this blog on Sunday, then a terrible thunder/rain storm came. A tree in our compound broke off, my TV is blown from the lightening and we had no electricity. Since Sunday evening the electricity is on and off, at the moment it is half strength. I think our copy machine has now a problem as well. I use now the solar power, but that is only during the day, because our battery is not charging any more. That is the reason that this message from Sunday is only finished today!
