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.

Nurse and car mechanic...

Yesterday, Janneke and I would go to town, to buy the last things for Susan's admission in the hospital. Before we use our vehicles, the first person that day, will always check oil and water. So I did that and... dropped the lid of the water reservoir  in the motor. Janneke was able to get it out, but she had to go under the car for that!! So we went to town a bit later but were able to buy the necessary things. Today at 2 pm we bring Susan to the hospital. Her cousin sister will stay with her during her hospital stay. We will come in several times a day, and provide what is needed. Tomorrow will be the operation and the baby will be born. Susan is okay, we tested her on Saturday for malaria again and she was positive, so we started directly the treatment, tonight she takes the last dose. Please pray for her and her baby!

This is Janet, a new baby who was born Friday night. She was brought on Saturday to Amecet. Her mother died one hour after the delivery, she bled to death.
Janet is a beautiful little girl, she is a bit premature, we don't know exactly how much. We took her yesterday to the doctor, the cord is infected and her eyes are also a bit infected. She is on treatment now. Giving birth is a risky business here!
