Camhomes staff shows adult motorcyclist how to correctly wear a helmet

AIP Foundation staff partnered with Camhomes representatives to deliver 150 quality helmets to lucky motorcyclists as part of a community outreach event focusing on road safety in Preah Sihanouk Province. In 2017, road crashes accounted for 75% of road fatalities in Cambodia, where only 27% of adult motorcyclists and 8% of child passengers were recorded wearing a helmet. Additionally, road crashes increased by almost 10% in Preah Sihanouk Province in 2017, making Preah Sihanouk Province the 12th highest road crash province in Cambodia.

H.E. Min Meanvy, Secretary of State, Ministry of Public Works and Transport and Secretary General of the National Road Safety Committee and Khuoch Lengkheang, Camhomes Press Relations and Marketing Strategy Manager attended the community safety event and advised many drivers and passengers on the correct way to wear their helmet. Police representatives also handed out road safety pamphlets, Traffic Law booklets and stickers to motorcyclists reminding them of their duty to be a safe road user.

The generous donation of 150 helmets by Camhomes to the Sihanoukville community is a positive step toward reducing the number of severe head trauma and death victims by providing quality helmets where they are most needed – in high risk areas.
