Nearly 1,000 people in Phnom Penh gathered on November 18th to publicly mourn the 1,905 lives lost on Cambodia’s roads every year. The National Road Safety Committee and Cambodian Red Cross have partnered with the Asia Injury Prevention (AIP) Foundation to observe the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
During the morning ceremony at Olympic Stadium, the Cambodian Red Cross Youth performed a song in memory of road victims, and AIP Foundation handed over 200 helmets to vulnerable road users. Police, local authorities, monks, and citizens from nine districts in Phnom Penh also participated.
