Rwanda Organizes First-Ever Public Exercise for Pregnant Women

  • Rwanda organized its first-ever public exercises for pregnant women. In the programme, nearly 100 women participated in the capital city of Kigali. The organisers said the motive behind this programme is to "change the myth on bodies of pregnant women". Leader of a local NGO in Rwanda, Nelson Mukasa says that there is a misconception that if a woman is pregnant, she has to stop any physical activity. Whereas, women should actually avoid inactivity since it is very risky for her body and the child she carries.
