Drowning claims an estimated 1.2 million lives around the world annually. Most of these drownings occur in the world's poorest countries, where drowning is often the leading cause of child death. It is an international epidemic which has been sadly overlooked.
We know that drowning is preventable. The RNLI has years of experience in saving lives at sea, on inland waterways, and in floods. And now we're sharing that expertise internationally to reduce drownings worldwide. We're providing others with the knowledge, equipment and skills to save more lives -- helping them to help themselves.
This is a short film that i shot and edited to help raise awareness of the problems of drowning around the world and what the RNLI are doing to try and combat this in Bangladesh!
