Six new children........

Gepubliceerd op 5 oktober 2018 om 16:58

This afternoon we got 6 new children in two hours.... First a new born baby, he was 2 days old. His mother passed away after the delivery, because of over bleeding. The family of the late mother came to bring the baby. It was again a sad story, the mother had been working in Kampala, they had never seen the father of the baby. There was a lot of confusion and the baby had only been fed water with some glucose.  We can take care of the baby, while the family  buries the mother and sort out everything with the father. 

Then 30 minutes later a car  drove in the compound and 5 children came out. In the morning we had been receiving phone calls from a neighbouring district. There had been a family drama in one of the villages. The parents of the children got into a fight. The mother had taken a Panga (kind of big knife) and had wounded her husband very badly. The two older children had run off and people came  running when they heard the comotion. The mother is in the police cells and the father is taken into the hospital and is in a critical condition. We were asked if we could help the children for now, untill the family has organized and can take over the care for the five children. The two oldest children were found this morning and the whole group was brought  to Amecet. They were a bit scared, except the third born boy, a Down sydrome child, he had spotted a little bicycle....

After a bath and clean clothes, they could smile and right now they are playing and laughing........ at least we could  help them to smile again and hopefully they forget a bit what they have gone through......
