Hong Leong Bank Cambodia Plc. teamed up with AIP Foundation and #SaveKidsLives to provide nearly 100 grade 1 and 2 students with life-saving helmets. The handover ceremony took place at Anuk Wat Primary School in Phnom Penh. During the event, the students participated in educational activities about how to follow traffic rules and learned about the importance of wearing their new helmets.

“Providing safety helmets to these kids is our way of showing our commitment in protecting the future generation of Cambodia,” Mr. Joseph Farrugia, CEO of Hong Leong Bank Cambodia Plc., said.

The #SaveKidsLives campaign was launched in the lead-up to the Third United Nations Global Road Safety Week in May 2015. It calls for global action to help halve road deaths and injuries by 2020, and has also been involved in advocacy efforts securing road safety’s place in the Sustainable Development Goals.
