Every week we are visiting the Therapeutic Feeding Centre (TFC) at the hospital. Mothers will stay here with their sick and often malnourished children. The mother will stay with her sick child, but she could very well have children at home as well. We will bring food for the children so they will regain strength. That way we shorten their stay at the hospital and the mom and her child can go home to their family.
In some cases we will take care of the baby at Amecet. We will take care of the child so the mother can go back to her family. As soon as the child is healthy again and regained its strength, we will take it back to their family.
The children will receive food at the hospital but it is not enough for a malnourished baby. Because of that it is necessary that we stop by and bring extra food for the ones who need it.
We visit Soroti Hospital very often. All of our HIV+ children are receiving their medicines at the hospital. A couple of years ago there was no Pediatric HIV Clinic. That is why the Dutch foundation “De Figurant” and Amecet worked together to build one. Now there is a beautiful Pediatric HIV Clinic for the HIV+ children.
