The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) has over 900 unpaid volunteers who respond 24/7/365 to save lives on South African waters. We also teach disadvantaged children about basic water safety through our proactive educational initiative the WaterWise Academy.


There are many ways that your donation will help us. For rescue operations we need boats, fuel, an emergency operations center, rescue stations and equipment. Our crew need special PPE to protect them and the people they save. Specialized training courses are a vital part of crew readiness. When it comes to water safety, we raise awareness and we provide education.
