Esther Wodui

Coordinator, Preterm Family Network (Greater Accra Chapter)

Esther Wodui joins the rescue team as the Coordinator for Preterm Family Network (Greater Accra Chapter) and an advocate for preterm babies and their mothers. In 2015, Esther gave birth to triplets boys prematurely with extremely low birth weight at Korle Bu in Ghana. Painfully, she lost two of her boys and is survived with one now.

The night of their birthday, she lost the oldest baby with the most weight, 1kg and who was also the healthiest according to the labor medical staff. The most painful loss was her 2nd senior baby who remained stable most of the 8weeks stay at NICU. He died whilst receiving a blood transfusion and the lack of simple but vital tools like ventilators that could be used in reviving her son. The excruciating pain emanating from this experience lingers on.

Esther believes that her contribution on the rescue team of the AFPNC is in honor of the memory of her boys and to ensure that more babies are rescued and tears of mothers are wiped away. Her role includes providing advocacy, leadership and coordinating members and programs at the community level.

She is a trained Social Worker and an advocate for the cause of the vulnerable, children, physically challenged and the elderly in society. Currently, she is the Headmistress of Perpetual Help School, a privately owned Basic school located in Accra.
