It's Madiba month, and we are celebrating a life that has made such an impact around the world.Quality education and active citizenship were very important to Nelson Mandela and by donating to Sea Rescue, you are contributing to fulfilling this mandate. At Sea Rescue… every day is Mandela Day. Our Sea Rescue crew are on standby 24 hours a day, 365 days a year saving lives. In 2018, our volunteer crew responded to 1138 rescue operations, rescued 1620 people and 51 animals.Our instructors are out there daily, visiting schools around the country teaching children about water safety, what to do in an emergency and how to do bystander CPR.We focus on children from challenged communities, where access to information is limited and the need is great. These are the children most likely to drown. Our water safety lesson fits into one school period and teaches children in fun and interactive discussions. We are very proud to have taught over 2 million children since 2006 and will continue to live out this legacy.If you would like to do something special to honour our Sea Rescue crews and support our water safety education school's programme, it would mean so much to us.There are a few ways in which you can donate.

If you are interested in joining Sea Rescue as a volunteer, you can read more about it via this link.We have a very special letter received from our patron Nelson Mandela in 1995 that we would like to share with you. Thank you for being part of our vision of Saving lives, Changing lives and Creating futures.#MakeAnImpact
