Overseas Vietnamese stars raise public awareness of traffic safety


QĐND – Tuesday, November 23, 2010, 20:54 (GMT+7)

Movie star Kathy Uyen and Australian Idol Thanh Bui were chosen as Goodwill Ambassadors for the public awareness campaign launched by the Asia Injury Prevention Foundation (AIP Foundation) in coordination with the HCM City Traffic Safety Committee.


For the first time, Vietnam has joined the event together with more than 100 other nations to remember road accident victims and share the suffering of the injured. The event also helps raise public awareness of road accident deaths and injuries in hopes preventing more road injuries and fatalities.


In 1993, the Road Peace initiated the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Accident Victims and on 27 October, 2005, the United Nations endorsed it as a global day to be observed on the third Sunday in November every year. This year’s event was celebrated on Sunday 21, November. 


Kathy Uyen and Thanh Bui will be involved in many activities including visiting road accident victims, meeting with government officials to come up with solutions to prevent road accidents, and raising public awareness of traffic safety via the mass media.
