Pakistan Life Saving (PALS) is Pakistan’s premier beach rescue, water safety and drowning prevention authority. With over 1,000 trained lifeguards and deployment of 150 lifeguards at any given time, PALS has the largest drowning prevention force in Pakistan. Since its inception in 2004, PALS lifeguards have rescued over 5,000 people and thereby positively impacted as many families.
PALS is a not-for-profit organisation registered under Section 42 of the Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan. PALS relies on private & corporate donations, government grants, corporate sponsorships and adventure tourism services to meet its financial needs.
Providing a free rescue & safety service to the public visiting aquatic environments across Pakistan is at the core of PALS. In addition, PALS helps alleviate poverty by training and employing people from the poor and impoverished coastal communities across the country. This gives the local community employment opportunities and a skill set qualification that they can use to get employment as lifeguards locally in clubs and hotels and internationally.
