Another Breath is a project devoted to raising awareness about, and preventing drowning, thethird leading cause of accidental deaths in the world.
It is sprung out of a firm belief thateveryone has an equal right to good health and well-being and an intention to do our part inachieving that. From contact with people working with drowning prevention in developingcountries we gathered that a lot is being done, but that the main problem is a lack ofawareness and funding.
Our solution to this can be found at www.anotherbreath.org. The website is a platformdedicated to amassing information and helping people connect with initiatives working toreduce drowning incidents. On the site you will find descriptions of the situation todayregarding accidental drownings, globally and in harshly stricken countries. For each countrythere are several organizations and initiatives listed, information on how they are tackling theproblem and a way for you to contribute to their cause. Furthermore, you can findinformation from the World Health Organization on how to efficiently prevent drownings indeveloping countries. However, we are not by ourselves able to provide comprehensiveinformation on drownings. Hence, what we have done is provide a service where everyonecan contribute and together make information available to all of us and where we togetherwith our local contacts only act as validators of the information. By doing so we also hopethat visitors will be encouraged to make a contribution to one or more of the organizationsworking to improve swimming knowledge and water safety around the world.
