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.

Happy Birthday Charles!!

Today it is Charles second birthday. He left almost 2 weeks ago Amecet, he was picked by the lawyers office and would meet his new daddy in Kampala. There they would get the passport and the visa for the USA, and then he would fly together with his father to his new home in Alabama. We have not heard from them since he left Amecet. But through some people we heard that they were planning to fly yesterday. We miss him, it is so quiet without him around, especially Catherine is missing him, and also Marry (on the picture) was your big sister who loved you so much!  He was more than 20 months in Amecet, so one of our family!! Charles we don't know if you reached your new family already, or maybe you are still on the way, we wish you a happy birthday and that God may bless you in your new family!! We are so thankful that we could care for you those first months of your life, you are such a lovely boy and we pray that you will feel at home in Alabama! We love you!!!! 
This is baby Martha, only born yesterday morning. She was born at home and her mother passed away just two hours after giving birth. They came to ask if we could help, the father was in shock and the baby was not fed yet. After talking with the aunt and the neighbour, we found out that the mother was HIV+, so the baby has to go on ARV's until we can test her (at 6 weeks) and know if she is HIV+ or not.
I am glad we have her in Amecet, with the medicines there is a chance that she will be HIV-, the baby is small, weighing 2.4 kg.
With Fiona is it not going well, we see her getting more and more weak. She still eats and drinks and she takes her medicines, but we don't see any progress in her condition. It is not easy.
