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!

So many new children, so many sad stories....

The last 3 weeks we got 12 new children in Amecet, the last three days , we got every day one new child. And every time I am so sad when I hear the stories, why the children needed to come to Amecet. I am also humbled and glad that God uses us to minister, to those little ones. They do need a safe place, but I do realise, that we are only a temporal place, the children need a permanent Home.
Here are some of their pictures:

 And here are some of their sad stories:
There was a child brought to Amecet, whose mother was killed by robbers. The whole family was asleep when they broke into the house. The father was with the animals and came home to find a chaos.
Another child was abandoned by the mother and only 2 weeks old..
There is a child whose mother tried to kill the child, the police brought the child to Amecet.
A small girl  lost her mother, due to HIV/AIDS, the child is malnourished and tests are done to see if the child is HIV+.
We got a baby born by C-section, the mother became very sick, unconsious, she died 2 days later.
Another child whose mother used the child to beg on the street for money. No care, no love no discipline. 
There is so much suffering among those children. They need care, they need love, they need treatment and they need dicipline..... Some children are so wild, even they are so young, they never got boundries, there was no one to stop them when they went too far... At the moment we have 22 children in Amecet, a lot of diapers, and there is always some one crying....
Pls. pray for those children, that we find a safe way ahead for them and pray for the staff as well.. 😊
