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!

World Aids day 2013

We stood still as an Amecet family, by World Aids day. It has been a tradition, we have done it now for many years. To me it is an emotional event. We remember the children who died this last year, we light a candle for each child and several staff members share about a particular child. 
 This year we lost 7 children, not all because of HIV, but sometimes they are still very little baby's and we couldn't test them yet. So we just remember them all. Like baby Peter, who died in Jan.2013, he was only 4 days old. Or Fiona, who was 12 years old when she passed away in July. Fiona was so sick and her body just gave up. Baby Anna, whose stomach was so swollen, she had so much pain. We also remembered William, who died recently after his operation, he was only 7 weeks old.
Esther, one of our staff, light the candle for Christine, she also died recently, after a very difficult and lonely time.
 After the serious time we also thank God for the life we see in many children. At the moment we have quite a full house and God is blessing us and He also entrust us with the care of the children. There were soda's and cake!!
We toast on LIFE!!!!!
