Making lifesaving history: World Drowning Prevention Day

This Sunday, 25 July, we’ll be celebrating the first ever World Drowning Prevention Day – created by the UN to officially recognise that drowning is an important international issue. 

Drowning has taken 2.5M lives around the world in the last decade. Many of these tragedies involved children, and most were preventable. That’s why we're working with other countries and organisations to highlight and tackle the problem. 

With you beside us, we pledge that we will never stand by. This is our watch. And with you by our side, we will go even further to save every one.
