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.

Max is a mini-man.....

Yesterday a car came to Amecet with 5 people and a very small baby. They were all uncles and one auntie. The baby was born 4 days ago, the mother started to bleed and they brought her to the Hospital in Soroti, in spite of all the efforts, the mother passed away yesterday.
The baby is called Max, but he is a real mini man. He is a premature baby, his weight is only 1.6 kg. He is so small and vulnerable , he needs warm water bottles and special care!!!!
 This is our nurse, Deborah. She is taking very good care of Max and instruct the other staff members about the care for him. Today is the burial of his mother, we pray for this little mini man and ask you to join us in prayer for Max.
We are very full at the moment, I think  with 28 children, we have the most children at the same time since we begun. This picture is from  the baby room with the smallest children. In total we have 12 babies, van 3 days old up to 5 months. 
Then 9 children from 6 months up to 5 years and 7 children in the age 11-15 years. 
As you can see, there is a lot of work and care to do! Please pray for our staff, that we stay alert and see the things we need to see and that we will not too busy to give the babies a cuddle and a hug.
