COD launches the Global Youth Traffic Safety Month in Kenya

The Chariots of Destiny Organization COD and Blood Life Kenya teamed up to launch the first Global Youth Traffic safety month (GYTSM) event on the 28th of April. COD setup a stand at Uchumi Hyper Langata Road and distributed information on the importance of road safety as well as urged the Youth and members of the public to sign the BSAFE pledge which focuses on five road safety aspects including:
Buckle up/Slow down/Always put your phone away/Focus on the road/Everyone share the road.



Bloodlife Kenya also set up a blood donation site to create awareness on the urgent need for blood in the country and to encourage members of the public to donate blood to be used for road crash victims in hospitals. This exercise not only encouraged members to save lives by donating blood, but also created awareness on the escalating
number of lives lost on our roads as a result of road crashes. The event which was a great success brought together over 200 individuals taking the pledge and close to 100 members of the public donated blood.

The Chariots of Destiny Organization appreciates the support of the sponsors of this event including the Make Roads Safe Campaign (USA), the National Organization for Youth Safety (NOYS, USA), Classic Functions (Kenya) and Twelve agency (Kenya).

Road crashes are the number one cause of death for young people today. Every year close to 1000 youth lose their life globally as a result of road crashes. COD and Bloodlife believe that road crashes can be avoided and intend to setup more events such as these so as to reduce statistics and eventually prevent death and injury caused by road crashes.
