Helmets for Kids launches in Siem Reap, donates helmets to high-risk primary school

24-03-2019

Students participate in interactive road safety curriculum

We gave 96 helmets to high-risk students at Phum O Primary School in Siem Reap as part of our Helmets for Kids program. This event was co-sponsored by a new partner, The Dirty Cuts Siem Reap Motorcycle Club (DCSR), a local motorcycle club founded in 2013 and based in Siem Reap. Proceeds from the Siem Reap Bike Meet, which was sponsored by DCSR, were also donated to the Helmets for Kids program. Phum O Primary School was selected for the helmet donation due to its dangerous location along National Highway 6, where three students were involved in road crashes last year. The event was especially timely given the upcoming Khmer New Year, when road crashes often occur in higher numbers than usual. At the ceremony, students received educational training and participated educational games.
