On 29 June, 2021, Paul Sadler Swimland made a generous donation to Swim Vietnam of $6000usd which will be used to help train swim teachers, builds pools, and provide free survival swimming and water safety lessons, giving Vietnamese children a skill that could save their life.
Ministry of Health in Vietnam reports that 16 people drown every day in the country, a rate ten times that of developed countries. Although this number is shocking, the World Health Organisation reports that this is a conservative estimate.
Paul Sadler Swimland values and has based its programs on teaching survival skills at every level over the past 50 years in both Vietnam and Australia. With this goal in mind, the connection with a charity such as Swim Vietnam whose personal mission is ‘to provide children with survival swimming skills that could save their life, as well as water safety education to help them make good choices around water – especially when unsupervised.’ is something that deeply aligns to Paul Sadler Swimland.
Paul Sadler Swimland has long been a supporter of Swim Vietnam and this is just one of many generous donations over the years that continues to contribute to helping Swim Vietnam work towards and achieve a reduced death toll due to drownings.
