Thirty-five received training on the importance of correct helmet use for themselves and their children through our Helmets for Families program sponsored by Manulife Cambodia. During the training, parents were provided with free quality helmets and instruction as to the importance of consistently wearing a helmet when driving. The training provided information on the national helmet law and focused on reinforcing the importance of the parents’ individual roles as caregivers to the well being of their children. The training was planned to coincide with the upcoming Lunar New Year to raise awareness of the higher incidences of road crashes around holiday periods and national celebrations. Parents were cautioned to take extra care on the roads at these times.

This activity follows Manulife Cambodia’s donation of 1,048 helmets to students, teachers, and mothers at Veal Vong Primary School in Kampong Cham province in early November 2017.
