Other Information About Event

  • Donation

    This is the 11th year that Nando's is raising funds for Royal Life Saving Society of Mauritius with the main purpose: “To reduce drowning incidents in Mauritius by providing essential Life Saving services and teaching people to swim”. 
     
    The Royal Life Saving Society (Mauritius) - RLSS is a non-profit, volunteer community service organisation with a mission to promote aquatic safety and lifesaving. The RLSS is widely recognised as the authority on water safety and lifesaving in Mauritius. 
     
    The number of cases is on the increase though drowning could have been avoided in most cases. Behind each death caused by drowning there are more than one victim; members of the afflicted families keep suffering for years and years. As responsible citizens, we cannot remain insensitive to such unnecessary losses of life. 
     
    They also promote swimming as a sport and a healthy leisure activity in their efforts to inculcate safe and healthy habits to the population in the fight against drugs, alcoholism, smoking, idleness and the scourges that threaten Mauritius. 
     
    The RLSS generally depends on the support and generosity of their own members to help fund their various activities: they regularly do teaching and training sessions that are held at Mont Choisy every Sunday from 07 30 to 09 30 and sometimes they do have to run special training sessions or activities at Flic-en-Flac, Blue Bay, etc. 
     
    FACTS 

    • The latest World Health Organisation figures show that over 500,000 people die from drowning in the world annually. The RLSS's humanitarian work is committed to reduce this unacceptable waste of human life as in many instances those drowning are children and young people. 
    • In the heart of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius has more than 330 kilometres of coastline plus rivers, lakes and pools. Water is everywhere. Only 2.9% of children aged 8 - 9 years can safely swim 25m (National testing data). Fatal drowning in Mauritius are 5 times higher than the average of developed countries, highlighting that drowning are a major public health problem. 
    • Drowning is the Most Preventable Cause of Child Death” “Swimming and water safety skills have been shown to reduce the risk of drowning by 88%. Teaching all school-aged children basic swimming, water safety and safe rescue skills is essential.” World Health Organization (WHO)
