Swimming Training BangladeshTo further respond to the issue of child drowning, Royal Life Saving Society - Australia, in consultation with International Life Saving and AusAID, established the Global Drowning Overseas Aid Relief Fund and has begun an awareness raising and fundraising initiative through the Global Drowning Fund website .

The Global Drowning Fund, and associated social media platforms, are being used to advocate drowning in low- and middle-income countries as a global public health issue, provide resources, news and information about the issue, and act as a central fundraising location.

Funds raised through the Global Drowning Fund will help provide training, education, and research, while increasing local skills and capacity for the prevention of drowning in the region.
