A photo exhibition highlighting ‘10 years of action and prevention’ by the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation will be held at the Galerie des Pêcheurs de Monaco for the next few months.
The exhibition features 26 unique photographs illustrating the Foundation’s projects as part of its three programmes: Learn to Swim, Water Safety and Sport and Education.
Through this temporary exhibition, which runs from 1st September to 31st October 2023, the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation aims to raise public awareness of its actions, which have benefited more than 1.2 million people over the past 10 years.
Drowning is a major global health issue and a priority in the Foundation’s actions. Responsible for the deaths of around 236,000 people worldwide each year, the main mission of the Foundation is to save lives by helping to reduce drowning rates.
In France, although the number of accidental drownings is still high, the figures show that the number of deaths continues to fall. 598 people drowned between 1st June and 2nd August this year, according to a recent epidemiological report from Public Health France. Over the same period, drowning deaths were 724 in 2022 and 797 in 2021 – down 17% in one year and 25% in two years.
The Galerie des Pêcheurs is located in the building above the Parking du Chemin des Pêcheurs.
