No person should drown. And yet, in South Africa 29% of fatal drownings are children under 14 years of age. Drowning is preventable and the NSRI is committed to being at the forefront of reaching as many people as possible with our Drowning Prevention initiatives.
Proactive initiatives, innovation and collaboration are key to our approach to Drowning Prevention.
We cannot afford to ignore the perils of drowning – and the value of water safety measures. On average there are approximately 1 484 drownings in South Africa annually, of which 29% (450) occur amongst children under 14 years.
Our aim is to empower all South Africans to be safe in and around water. To do this, we need your help.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on donations, however small, to support our Drowning Prevention initiatives.
Each Water Safety lesson costs just R10 per child. Each Pink Rescue Buoy costs only R1 500
