Helmet manufacturer Protec, a subsidiary of the Asia Injury Prevention Foundation, gave away 500 helmets for pupils and teachers at Hoa Lu Preschool in District 1, HCMC on Tuesday.
The donation is part of a series of activities in the Helmets for Kids campaign, which is an initiative of the foundation in order to improve road safety.
The campaign is funded by the Asian Development Bank, Australia’s Agency for International Development, the Danish Embassy, the U.S. Embassy, the World Bank and Intel Vietnam.
Since December 2007 when wearing helmets is a must for all motorcycle riders, Protec has given out more than 10,000 helmets to pupils nationwide.
