Kigali: First Lady Jeannette Kagame on Wednesday said “it is heartbreaking” that many mothers and children continue to die from preventable illnesses, RNA reports.

Eight mothers are dying in Rwanda from birth-related complications, Mrs Kagame said as she launched a major program to reduce mortality among expectant mothers and children less than five years.

“It is heartbreaking to see that every three hours, one mother dies from birth related complications,” she told local and international delegates.

She called for an intensive collaborative effort to halt the trend.
