Nearly 1,000 students and Abbott volunteers participate in road safety festival in Vietnam

October 4, 2019

Nearly 1,000 children and teachers attended the “Children Have Fun with Road Safety” festival through the Helmets for Families program, organized by AIP Foundation and supported by the global healthcare company Abbott, in coordination with the Ho Chi Minh City Traffic Safety Committee and Department of Education and Training. More than 30 Abbott volunteers joined students of Le Loi Primary School, in Nha Be district, for the festival which coincided with Annual Traffic Safety Month in Vietnam.  

At the festival, students and volunteers participated in road safety games, paintings, and helmet-wearing demonstrations to reinforce previous road safety education delivered by AIP Foundation at program schools.

“We are very pleased with all of the support from the Abbott volunteers at this event. The children are always excited to attend and learn about safe helmet use from volunteers, and these festivals are a great opportunity for students to learn outside of the classroom, especially to know more about traffic safety and to raise awareness of themselves about road safety to protect their lives and others,” said Mr. Le Thanh Hai, Deputy of Education and Training Department of Nha Be District.
