Organized by the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation and CEFSSA 40, the event aimed to teach children aged 7 to 11 about water safety for the prevention of drowning, first aid and “awareness of the risks associated with the sea, discovery of the marine environment as well as water rescue using rescue tubes, ”according to the foundation’s Facebook page.
