It’s time to stop be­ing so self­ish and all get along

7 Days in Dubai - - ENTERTAINMENT -

My aim is to make ev­ery­one aware of the dan­gers of wa­ter and en­cour­age young chil­dren to learn to swim. Drown­ing is a lead­ing cause of child­hood deaths and it is this statis­tic that I would like to change. I have writ­ten to the Dubai Mu­nic­i­pal­ity ask­ing them to con­sider mak­ing it a law to have all swim­ming pools fenced off to pre­vent easy ac­cess by young chil­dren and to have all pub­lic beaches in Dubai pa­trolled by qual­i­fied life­guards. I have also vis­ited KHDA ask­ing them to con­sider mak­ing swim­ming com­pul­sory in all schools. If I can make a dif­fer­ence in any way it would be to re­duce the num­ber of drown­ings in Dubai by mak­ing peo­ple aware of the dan­gers of wa­ter and en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one to learn to swim.
