Thank you to everyone who supported our Creches for Bangladesh appeal. Because of you, it’s been a huge success – exceeding its £40,000 target.
This means that children who might otherwise be playing unsupervised near water will have a safe place to learn and play. Creche access reduces a child’s risk of drowning by a life-changing 82%.
The money donated will now be doubled by the UK government, helping to keep even more children safe.
We’ll keep these pages updated with progress on the project.
And if you’d like to know more about our drowning prevention partnerships in Bangladesh and elsewhere, you’ll find details of the work on our lifesaving intervention pages.
