Julie Bishop announces Australian taxpayers to pay for Bahrain's life saving and swimming development
In October 2016, Life Saving Victoria in Australia assisted Royal Life Saving Bahrain to develop the first Water Safety Strategy for Bahrain. In implementing the Water Safety Strategy, Royal Life Saving Bahrain aims to develop a culture of swimming and enjoyment of water, promote volunteerism, reduce water- related death and injury, enhance the appeal of water- related tourism and foster respect for coastlines and marine habitats.
The Bahrain Lifesaving and Swimming Development Project, supported by Council for Australian-Arab Relations, will help Royal Life Saving Bahrain to develop lifesaving and swimming competency in Bahrain. The project will see experts from Australia travel to Bahrain and conduct training programs to develop local expertise in lifesaving and swimming.
