Liezl van der Merwe, PR and Guest Speaker for the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) gave a very informative talk at our weekly meeting.

The NSRI is a charity staffed by almost 1 000 volunteers who respond 24/7/365 to save lives on South African waters. Their efforts do not end there however and Liezl spoke to us about the proactive work the NSRI does in awareness raising, lobbying for effective beach signage and about the WaterWise Yazi Ngamanzi instructors who visit schools in an effort to educate children on water safety.
