Water Safety

U.S.A. – Tustin, Californie – 27.04.2014



On 27 April, H.S.H. Princess Charlene took part in a "Water Safety" and "Learn to Swim" day organised by Her Foundation in Tustin, California in partnership with the Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation.
 
Accompanied by five-time Olympic medallist Dara Torres, an ambassador to Her Foundation, She met with disadvantaged children from the "Village of Hope" at the Blue Buoy Swim School.

Thanks to the support of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, the children at this centre will enjoy swimming lessons throughout the summer.
 
"The Safer 3 Water Safety Challenge" then brought together the young, and the not-so-young, to visit the stations set up around the pool to participate in games based on drowning prevention.
 
The Princess also used the occasion to present five rescue boards to the International Surf Lifesaving Association.

These rescue boards, specially designed by Her Foundation, were distributed to various locations across the United States where drowning is the leading cause of injury-related death for children under five.
