The weekend of newborn baby's...

This weekend we received 5 newborn baby's in Amecet, from all of them their mother passed away....

The first two were twins, they came on Saturday morning, they were born early that same day... and their mother passed away.

A small little premature boy was brought, he was born 10 weeks too early, but he looked good and was not too small, he was also born on Saturday and was brought in the afternoon to Amecet.

Then at the end of the afternoon a baby girl was brought, she was just born that afternoon and her mother had passed away. 

That made 4 baby's on one day!!!!

Sunday, at the end of the afternoon, another little baby was brought, He was born that day, but his mother passed away. This baby had serious problems, he has seizures the whole time. The father had no one to stay with him in the hospital, because this baby was sick.. The father rushed back to organise to get the body of his wife transported home. Janneke called the doctor who referred the baby to Amecet and stayed with the child, most of the night. But the situation didn't get better, even after giving the medicines the doctor had prescribed. In the morning Janneke went to Dr. Engulu, in the clinic next to us, he advised to bring the baby to Soroti Hospital, the baby was now also on oxygen and fed by NG tube. We called the father, he was first too busy to come, he was organising the burial of his wife... We insisted, so he came, together with a lady who would stay with the baby in the hospital, So this little baby is in the hospital now, we pray he will make it, his situation is not good. All in all it was a sad weekend, so many children lost their mothers, we pray we can minister to them for this time and help the family to care for those little one's.

P.S. The last, fifth baby passed away on Monday evening at around 6 pm in the Hospital.


  1. Wat erg dat de laatste baby het niet haalde. Veel baby's op een dag. Hopelijk mogen zijlanger bloeien als die blauwe bloem uit je andere post.
