As part of our Helmets for Families program in Kampong Cham City, 11 Manulife staff volunteers had the opportunity to ‘meet and greet’ with their local community while distributing leaflets on helmets and road safety. Manulife volunteers toured the local streets and engaged with over 600 business owners and residents to clarify road safety issues and to support the message of why wearing a helmet when driving a motorcycle is essential.

Later the same day, Kampong Cham-based police officers and AIP Foundation staff conducted a training session with 160 Veal Vong Primary School students aimed at improving students’ knowledge and awareness on road safety issues. The police officers encouraged students to always practice good road safety behaviors that would keep them safe while traveling on the road, either as a pedestrian, cyclist, or as a passenger on a motorcycle. The students were then given a knowledge test by AIP Foundation staff on the lessons they had been taught.
