HCMC – AIP Foundation, in collaboration with the National Traffic Safety Committee and the Hanoi Department of Education and Training, has hosted a helmet handover ceremony and a Road Safety Day at Phung Khac Khoan – Thach That High School, offering thousands of United Nations ECE 22.05 Standard helmets to Hanoi students.
As many as 5,000 helmets, of which 2,000 are part of the ECE 22.05 pilot program, will be distributed to three schools in Hanoi City.
The ECE 22.05 helmet is a revolutionary new helmet that champions safety while being affordable and accessible to all. Wearing a quality helmet can reduce the risk of death by 42% and the risk of serious brain injury by 69%.
“The helmet handover ceremony and the Road Safety Day at Phung Khac Khoan – Thach That High School will promote community awareness of the life-saving importance of increasing helmet use among young adults,” said Le Chi Thuy Dung, commercial director at Janssen Vietnam, a unit of Johnson & Johnson.
The helmet handover is part of the “Helmets for Kids” program supported by Johnson & Johnson. From 2012 to 2022, the program has provided over 74,000 helmets to schools across nine Vietnamese provinces, in addition to tools and resources to ensure children in the community are commuting to school safely.
