On June 26-27, Avi Silverman, FIA Foundation’s Director of Campaigns and Communications visited AIP Foundation offices in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
The FIA Foundation, an independent charity that promotes road safety has supported AIP Foundation’s programs and operations since 2011.
Presenting the “MY World” campaign to the AIP Foundation team, Avi emphasized the necessity of support needed from countries and organizations to advocate for road safety and reach the campaigns target to reduce road traffic fatalities by 50% by 2030. He also stressed the importance to vote for ‘better roads and transport’ and ‘better healthcare’ as part of the post 2015 Sustainable Development Goal priorities.
During his visit, Avi observed the lack of helmet use among children in Vietnam. He commented on Twitter, “Just at the HCMC children’s hospital #Vietnam w. @AIPFoundation. There’s work to be done! #TargetSaveLives.”
