As part of the Helmets for Families program, 50 parents took part in a training workshop in which they learned about the importance of helmet use as well as safety precautions they should take during the upcoming Lunar New Year celebrations, a time when road crash rates tend to increase. AIP Foundation and Manulife Cambodia launched this year’s edition of the family-focused program earlier this month by providing more than 1,000 helmets to students, teachers, and mothers at Kessararam Primary School in Siem Reap Province.
During this training, mothers were also provided with free, high quality helmets. The training reiterated the importance of consistent helmet usage to prevent head injuries and protect families on Cambodia’s roads.
