Our international work
Every 100 seconds, someone in the world drowns. These are wasted lives. Preventable deaths.
Drowning is a silent epidemic that claims an estimated 320,000 lives every year, many of them children. But this leading killer isn’t getting the global attention it deserves.
The RNLI is working with global leaders, public health organisations and at-risk communities to help turn the tide. We want to make drowning prevention a priority worldwide and reduce this staggering loss of life.
By raising awareness, conducting research and testing interventions, we can make a difference together.
