Good morning everyone,

Eminences

Excellencies

Ladies and gentlemen,

First, I would like to convey to you a message of friendship and best wishes on behalf of Prince Albert of Monaco, my Husband, our families and the people of Monaco, and to express our sadness and compassion with the families of the so many people who died and those injured during the tragic attacks in Paris.

This year, the Pontifical Council holds the 30th edition of the Annual Conference for Healthcare Workers.

Congratulations on Your steady commitment towards public health, security and safety.

As we just heard from the distinguished representative of The World Health Organization, death by drowning is one of those serious threats to public health worldwide, especially in poor regions,

Having spent years teaching underprivileged children to acquire simple water safety techniques around aquatic environments, I can only say that simple ideas prove sometimes to be most effective.

Around the Globe, thousands of innocent lives are tragically lost to drowning every year.

I am here to share with you how many lives we are saving– and how many more we can save, simply by training the trainers and by focusing on one person, one family, one community at a time.

Eminences,

Yours Excellencies,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

In joining forces, in sharing experiences and resources, we will succeed in saving lives through more international cooperation in fighting death by drowning, this terrible yet silent killer.

Thank you.
The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation

(Launched on 14th December 2012, the primary objective of The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is to save lives by putting an end to drowning. Its missions are to raise public awareness about the dangers of water, teach children preventive measures, and teach them to swim. The World Health Organization estimated that 372,000 people drowned worldwide in 2012).

  1. In times of a overstated capitalism I don´t wonder, that protection against drowning became more important as hunger. Probably Princess Charlene thinks that as well and she is looking for backdoor to help some people.

    2. And I agree with 17:26. Fab, modern and not afraid to be outside the box. Refreshing getting sick and tired of the clones and their fashion princess look!

  3. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your comment, but if you're trying to help people, it doesn't matter which door you go through, does it? And can we not address hunger and "drowning" at the same time? Hypercritical!

  4. A teenage neighbor drowned when I was young and the family struggled with their grief for a very long time. Considering this was a healthcare conference it makes sense to deal with all kinds of different areas within the system. If 372,000 people died from drowning in 2012, this is an important cause for Princess Charlene to focus on with her competitive swimming background.

    Of course, there are many issues to tackle around the world, but Princess Charlene has chosen to focus on helping in an area where she has the knowledge to make a difference.

    1. Agree, every royal choose their own focus areas depending on who they are and what they burn for. Nothing wrong with any of them. People should stop critizing everything it just looks stupid.

  5. I don't think drowning is more important than hunger, however people in poor nations have been starving for how long? Has anyone come up with a solution as yet?
    I remember "Band Aid" that didn't fix world hunger, and nothing has to date, but something maybe able to done to stop children drowning. Should all other child welfare issues be put on "hold" until child hunger is solved, because if that was to happen, no one would get anywhere.
    In Victoria, Australia we had an issue of children downing in backyard pools, so it was legislated that all pools be fenced and have childproof gates, had our state waited until the world had figured out how to stop killing each other and how to figure out how to stop greed and poverty etc, how many children would have died?
