‘The sound of a mother who has lost her child to drowning is universal’

Episode 169 – World View: Kate Eardley

Somewhere around the world, drowning takes a life every other minute. Meet the woman striving to change that.

The RNLI’s founder, Sir William Hillary, had a vision to save lives at sea, not just in the UK and Ireland, but across the globe – and the RNLI’s international team are helping his vision become a reality.

Kate Eardley, co-leader of the international team, talks about the RNLI’s work supporting drowning prevention in more than 40 countries across the world. She shares the humbling experience of meeting families who have lost children to drowning, and the remarkable stories of people making a difference on the ground.
