Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
AIP Foundation coordinated five hospital visits during the week of September 4-9 to distribute 6,400 informative hand fans to patients at Cho Ray, Nha Be, Hoc Mon, Cu Chi and Nhi Dong 2 hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City through the Helmets for Families program, sponsored by Abbott.
The hand fans contained useful tips and information including instructions on how to wear a helmet properly, how to identify the safety features of a standard helmet, and a list of sanctions for people who break the law by failing to wear a helmet.
The fan distribution event was preceded by a visit to Cho Ray Hospital earlier this year in March to engage health professionals with parents and teachers from program schools. Participants visited road crashes victims who have suffered from brain injuries and saw firsthand the importance of proper helmet use while driving or riding on a motorcycle.
