Madam Uyovbukerhi was an expectant mother on holiday in 2003’s Ghana when she suddenly had to deliver her third child. Tejie, who was born premature (weeks before the usual nine months gestation) lived only three weeks before passing away. Uyovbukerhi describes the death as “truly avoidable, if there had been extra resources”. The hospital she’d chosen didn’t have enough nursing staff in its maternity ward to ensure proper care for all the babies.
As her answer to doing something in her child’s name to bring hope and life to others, Uyovbukerhi and her lawyer sister Chief Mrs. Yvonne-frances Igweh founded LittleBigSouls, a charity recognised by the World Health Organisation (“WHO”) that works to improve outcomes for premature babies in five African countries: Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Guinea and Zimbabwe.
