SOS Children’s Village taught swimming for free

On the morning of July 13, the provincial Youth Activity Center held the opening ceremony of “Free swimming class for children in 2022” at its swimming pool.

The course helps children improve their awareness and skills about drowning prevention

The free swimming class consists of 15 sessions lasting for more than 3 weeks (expected to end at the end of July) for 35 children from SOS Hue Children's Village. They will be imparted basic knowledge and skills to ensure safety, avoid drowning, as well as skills to swim and give first aid when in danger.

Teaching swimming for free is an annual activity implemented by the provincial Youth Activity Center to promote the movement of swimming and physical training for children and contribute to reducing accidents and injuries for children. During the summer of this year, the Center will continue to coordinate with other units to organize more free swimming classes.
