A large proportion of the deaths and severe injuries result from injuries to the head.
Helmets are effective in reducing the likelihood of head injuries, as well as their severity.
Increasing helmet use in Lebanon is an important way of improving road safety.
It is not uncommon to see small bikes overloaded with not two but three unprotected passengers.
Kunhadi took advantage of Hamra festival this year to give out educational pamphlets for the community, and as part of road traffic injury prevention, Kunhadi will launch the helmet campaign as of October 2010.
Sponsored by Mawared Bank, Kunhadi charity will supply delivery food chain two wheel drivers with motorcycle helmets.
Kunhadi appreciates your feedback and welcomes anyone interested to join our community.
