Helmet manufacturer Long Huei joins the campaign promoting child helmet use in Vietnam

May 7, 2012


Long Huei, the Taiwanese manufacturer of the popular Andes helmet brand, has joined AIP Foundation’s public awareness campaign promoting child helmet use by donating helmets to a Vietnamese primary school. The students and teachers of Ha Huy Giap School in District 12 of Ho Chi Minh City received 1,505 helmets on May 7th.

Ha Huy Giap School is located in a particularly dangerous are. One student and his mother were recently injured when a bus hit their motorcycle on their way to school, and several other accidents have also taken place. While 80 percent of these students are driven to school on motorcycles, fewer than 9.8 percent wear helmets daily. This is mostly due to a lack of awareness, but our students’ families also have limited funds. These helmets will make a big difference in their lives.

Long Huei demonstrated its social responsibility by joining the campaign. Their high quality helmets are available in child sizes, so Long Huei chose to contribute to our campaign by providing primary students with free helmets and funding their helmet use education.
