Too many Israelis drown on Israeli beaches and waterways. Our program saves Israeli lives. Australian Friends of Life Saving Israel Inc. has initiated a strategic alliance between Surf Life Saving Australia and Hazalah Yamit Yisrael (ישראל ימית הצלה), also known as Life Saving Israel, to launch an Israel Nipper program across the beaches of Israel. Our iconic Australian Life Savers are training Israeli lifeguards to run an all new innovative Israel Nipper program, based on our Australian precedent, that will resonate through Israeli society. By including not only Jews but Israeli Arabs we have also successfully breached cultural barriers in a way never before achieved. Possibilities are endless.
