Now that summer is upon us, the messages that the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation communicates are more pertinent than ever:  raise public awareness to the danger of water, educate children about proper water safety and teach them to swim.

The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, the Aquatic Rescue and Diving Center of Monaco (CSAPM) and the association Cap ô Pas Cap, organised, on 25 June 2018, the Water Safety Day, in partnership with the Monaco Red Cross.

70 school children aged between 11 and 13 were welcomed at the Larvotto Beach in Monaco, to discover and learn about aquatic rescue.
