Holiday helmet delivery

UPS, a Global Supporter of the Decade of Action, has provided 1870 motorcycle crash helmets to children at a school in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The donation was part of the 'Helmets for Kids' programme run by the Asia Injury Prevention Foundation, which sees corporates, governments and philanthropies sponsoring helmets for children for whom a motorcycle is the daily family transport. The helmet handover was timed ahead of the annual Tet holiday, but Jeff Maclean, General Manager of UPS Vietnam, says: " We urge all Vietnamese children to wear helmets all year long".
