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!

Honor the aunties...

Today was Women's Day. So it is a good opportunity to honor the Women in Amecet!! We had cake and soda and a small gift of appreciation for each of them. We thanked them for the good job they do. It is very busy at the moment, many baby's and then four toddlers who are all very mobile and do all kinds of things you do not want them to do!!!
Here we (they) are singing the National Women song. Very serious!!! 
Helen and Josh helped me to make all the hearts on the little presents (soap + airtime)

We are thankful for the work the aunties do in Amecet, we can't run the place without them. We have struggles, but we see so many children do so much better now:

 Thomas came in October 2014, was very sick, but is doing great now. A beautiful, cute little man!

Richard was left behind in a garden. He is gaining every week and we see progress in him.

The premature born twins, Martha and Mary are two little healthy ladies! They will go home next week!

Of course there are also  children who are giving us worries, Gabdesia is still very sick, Janneke takes her every week to a counsellor in the Hospital, she seems to have given up to fight for her life, then we have two babies who are not gaining and struggling, on and off on IV drip,  We have two children on a NG feeding tube, but we do see that our work makes a different. And the aunties are doing a big part of the work. And if we are a bit down, we look at Thomas, Richard, Martha and Mary or we look at our four toddlers, who are every day in for a naughty joke!
