Date 27/04/17 09:17

Princess Charlene – Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene has been promoting her Foundation which has been “created to raise public awareness about drowning and the dangers of water” during a visit to South Africa. Princess Charlene hosted a private cocktail function in Sandton, Johannesburg. The Princess, along with several of South Africa’s most highly-regarded athletes, addressed the group about her Foundation. According to the World Health Organisation, drowning is the third leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide and in 2012, approximately 372,000 people died from drowning, with “children, particularly in low and middle-income countries” being at the highest risk of drowning.
