The last week we got several new born children in Amecet. It started with the premature twin girls. I wrote about them in my last blog. They are doing well, it is not easy, but they are stable, we still feed them by a NG tube and they haven't reach 1.7 kg. yet, but they will by the weekend!!! But we got more new born baby's... On the picture you see the twins at the left, and then we got baby Margaret, she was one day old, small and vulnerable, the day after we got a phone call from the hospital about a newborn baby, Christine, the mother had passes away. We took her from the father who was very sad about losing his wife. We had no bed left, so the two little girls are sharing, but there was place for them in Amecet. We also got two other children who were 5 weeks and 16 months old.
Today we celebrate the birth of Jesus, with a full house of all vulnerable children, all with their own sad story. I am so thankful that we can give them this safe place for this time in their life, while they need it. When Jesus was born, there was no place for Him, so he was born in a stable. We are happy to help those little one´s in His Name. We celebrate His Birthday together with a day of working together. Half of our Ugandan staff is free with Christmas, while the other half is free with New year, We had a small team today, some were cooking, others were doing the laundry, others were feeding and changing the baby´s while others kept an eye on the toddlers.
But we all joined together in a wonderful feats meal, celebrating the birthday of Jesus!
