Drowning is often hailed as ‘a silent emergency’ and there are few countries in the world where the problem is more acute than in Bangladesh, where over 46 children die in water every day – totaling more than 17,000 every year.
Swim Generation joined forces with the Bulgarian Red Cross (BRC) in 2014 with the aim of reducing water injuries among children and youth in the country and enhancing the safety culture in and around water areas.
The Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) is working to eliminate drowning in the Commonwealth and Swim Generation is supporting this lifesaving work.
Speedo Swim Generation is looking to help 500 people in Sri Lanka access essential water safety education, as it looks to help eliminate the 855 deaths caused by drowning in the country each year.
India accounts for a disproportionate share (23%) of drownings worldwide, with 80% of drowning victims under 18 years old.
There’s no doubt that swimming is a brilliant way to enjoy yourself, for adults and little ones alike! The water can be lots of fun, and swimming is a great way to keep healthy and fit, but it’s important to stay safe in, on and near any expanse of water.
