Together, on Saturday, May 11, road safety stakeholders across Cambodia marked Global Road Safety Week by co-organizing a ‘Long Short Walk’ at Anuvath Reachtheani Primary School in Phnom Penh. National Road Safety Committee collaborated with the World Health Organization, Global Road Safety Partnership, Cambodian Red Cross (CRC), Cambodia Movement for Health, AIP Foundation, Handicap International, and Coalition for Road Safety to make this event possible.
The ‘Long Short Walk’ aims to increase the attention of the government and relevant institutions to improve sidewalks and crosswalks. Around 400 participants, namely school children, Cambodian Red Cross youth, and staff from concerned ministries and partners, walked for about one kilometer starting from the CRC office to Anuvath Reachtheani Primary School holding a banner with the words: ‘We are walking for safe roads for pedestrians’.
