about

STOP. WATCH is an initiative aimed at raising awareness about water safety for children. Through this campaign we hope to create a secure and enjoyable swimming experience for little ones and their families.

Water safety is a serious matter. In Malaysia, drowning is the second biggest cause of unintentional death among children after traffic accidents. In fact, children make up more than 70% of nationwide drowning figures.

We all have a responsibility to STOP and WATCH over our little ones while they’re in the water. Just a split second of distraction could lead to serious harm or in the worst case - accidental drowning.

Mr. Bryan Yap, founder of Finns Boutique Swim Centre, has always been a strong advocate for water safety. As a father, he understands how important it is to protect children from casualties. Drawing on his experience as a swimming coach over the last 20 years, he hopes to educate and guide parents and children in making safety a top priority. His vision is to see the STOP.WATCH initiative brought to schools and swimming centres nationwide so that everyone can have a fun and safe experience in the water.
