"Although more than 70% of the earth is covered with water, I believe that people do not know enough about the risk of drowning. All Rescue Organisations worldwide share the same issue, which is preventing people from drowning and rescue lives at sea. As a Trustee, I would like to inform more people about our work to get them involved"
