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.

A Wedding in Amecet.

Today was the day!!! Charles weds Catherine. The organisation of the ceremony was in the hands of Helen, who drilled everybody what to do! Catherine was a colorful bride and Charles a tough looking,  in jeans dressed, groom!

All went well, except that the bride her finger was in between the chairs and she cried, the wedding cake (bread with peanut butter) was eaten all and the wedding guests enjoyed it very much!
We are doing well, no new children, except yesterday, the Probation office brought a little boy of around 3 years old, he was walking along the road and was almost hit by a car. Someone took him to the probation office, who brought him to us. There were radio announcements made on the local radio and then we just wait, who will turn up to claim the boy. Of course we do not give the child to anyone who comes to claim him, it will go via the police or Probation office. The little boy didn't talk, we didn't know his name, but he started to play and he liked the food. But when he had to sleep.... he really cried for a while and then he fell asleep. This morning the Probation officer came with the father to pick him. He had escaped from home, he wanted to go to the mosque and got lost.
