Rose and Anna are back in Kotido..

In February 2015 we got a phone call from the Probation Officer from Kotido. If we could help with two infants.... Kotido is a District more North of Soroti. It is mostly Karomajong who live there and it is a couple of hours drive, over very bad roads...
We have had children via the Kotido Probation office (Child Protection) before. It is a bit difficult to have children from so far, we can't do our own tracing or home visitation. The probation office there is doing that and they are also responsible to do the monitoring after the child is going back home. We can't help with porridge flour, sugar or milk money, because it is too far. But the children we got via the Kotido Probation office in the past, were very needy, so if we can help, we help...
The two little girls he brought in February, were not too bad, they were not malnourished, but they both lost their mother and they feared that they were not taken good care off now. So we got them in Amecet and in the meantime they looked in the family who will care for them. Baby Rose was 3 month old and baby Anna was only 4 days old when they came to Amecet on February 14.
 This picture was taken in May 2015, they were 3 months with us. They both do very well, gaining and they have hardly been sick. Everybody loves Rose (left) and Anna. They are very ready to go back home, but we had to wait untill the Probation Officer from Kotido came to Soroti to pick them.
And yesterday (Saturday) they came.. Baby Anna was picked by her Auntie (left on the picture) and Rose was picked by her grandmother. It is always hard to let go, you start loving them and you know that they go to a difficult place, where people are poor and where is not so much hygiene. But at the other hand it is so good to see them go back to their people, to the place where they belong...
Dear Anna and Rose, we wish you the best and we enjoyed your lovely smiles, may God bless you and protect you!!
