Mothers honored with International Women’s Day road safety forum

March 6, 2019

Mothers share ideas about how protect their communities from road fatalities

In support of International Women’s Day, we organized a helmet use forum for 30 mothers at Hun Sen Krong Primary School in Cambodia. The forum is a vital part of the Helmets for Families program, which is sponsored by Manulife Cambodia. The mothers received information on the impact of road crashes on society and their families, the relationship between injury prevention and helmet use, and their role in encouraging helmet use among their families. Additionally, the mothers learned about Cambodian traffic law and safer behavior tips for the upcoming Khmer New Year.

Three hundred students from Hun Sen Krong Primary School were shown the importance of helmets, traffic signs, pedestrian and passenger behavior. This follow-up training comes after the 1,055 helmets donated to teachers, students, and parents in November 2018. We are working in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport, General Commissariat of National Police, and National Road Safety Committee to implement other activities at Hun Sen Krong Primary School over the coming year.
