Swimming for safety is a project launched with the aim to provide first aid courses and swimming techniques to local children.
UNICEF and The Alliance for Safety state Vietnam is the one of countries with the highest rate of drowning in the world, an average of 32 deaths every day. The Vietnamese government national programme on child injury prevention for 2013-2015 focuses on the prevention of child drowning. This program is particularly crucial as Thua Thien Hue Province has extensive flooding which poses significant safety risks for children in the province. Phu Loc district within Hue province is home to South East Asia’s largest lagoon. Statistics by Thua Thien Hue Red Cross show that 1,815 children were involved in water related accidents and fatalities in 2008 alone.
