On July 17, HTV filmed an episode of the talk show “Woman and life”, featuring Vietnam top model and Goodwill Ambassador Vu Ha Anh. The program explored Ha Anh’s life and her responsibility to improve public awareness about traffic safety and specifically child helmet use.
When asked why traffic safety matters to her, Ha Anh shared that in her position as Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations Children’s Fund and AIP Foundation, she “was really shocked to learn that every year in Vietnam nearly 2,000 children die as a result of traffic accidents. What families do not realize is that they can avoid the tragedy of losing their beloved children if they put helmets on them. Helmets do not harm children’s spines as some adults misunderstand. In fact, helmet use can reduce the risk of head injury by 69%.”
Ha Anh advised parents to, “always put helmets on your children before starting your bike’s engine. Remember, accidents always happen when you least expect it, so be prepared for your children’s safety.”
The show will broadcast on HTV7 Sunday, July 21at 12:45 pm and Monday, July 23 at 7:00 am, and will include a short documentary of Ha Anh training children on correct helmet use.
