To coincide with Drowning Prevention Week on June 14, The Sreepur Village, Bangladesh would like to highlight the importance of its #SwimSafe Campaign this summer.
On Monday the #SwimSafe schemes commenced once again in The Sreepur Village. They are run by a team from the CIPRB (Centre for Injury Prevention and Research, Bangladesh) who, along with assistance from the British RNLI, have devised learn to swim schemes that are run in both rural and urban areas in Bangladesh
This week in the UK its #DrowningPreventionWeek and in Bangladesh right now its the rainy season which means hundreds of families, in flood-stricken areas, will lose their homes but most importantly their lives.
The Sreepur Village would like to send their heartiest congratulations to Becky Horsbrugh who yesterday crossed the 16-km Bangla Channel from Teknaf to Saint Martin’s Island in the Bay of Bengal. She is the first British citizen to have completed this challenge
