Lifeline Care Association – a not-for-profit organisation operating in Abuja committed to rendering free road traffic accident rescue services and road safety awareness campaign is set to organise a road safety awareness Charity walk. The Charity walk which is organised in partnership with the United Nations is in commemoration of the 4th UN Global Road Safety Week.
This year’s UN Global Road Safety Week themed Save Lives #SlowDown is dedicated to raising awareness about the dangers of over speeding as a key risk factor in road traffic accident fatalities.
According to the Founder of Lifeline, Dr. Nkem Momah “Nigeria, is all too familiar with the havoc wrecked by over speeding; lost breadwinners, bright youngsters, innocent kids and statistics reveal that Abuja is one of the most affected places in Nigeria”. He reiterated that the forthcoming road safety awareness walk presents a unique opportunity for all to promote the need for road users to embrace best driving practices especially as it relates to SLOWING DOWN.
The Charity walk is slated to hold on Saturday, 13th May, 2017 by 6am starting at the Millennium Park, Maitama, Abuja. Participants are encouraged to purchase the walk tee-shirts online at www.lifeline.org.ng/charitywalk or at the Charity’s 1019, Gimbiya Street, Area 11 office.
The Charity enjoins all relevant stakeholders especially commercial drivers, transport unions, road safety agencies, medical practitioners, civil society organisations, corps members, students and indeed the general public to participate in this event.
