AritaGlobe Foundation –a non governmental organization (NGO) has partnered with the National Road Safety Authority (NRSA) on its ‘Arrive Alive’ campaign aimed at preventing road accidents on the country’s roads and highways.
The campaign is the Foundation’s current humanitarian project after ending a month-long breast cancer awareness campaign last month.
President of AritaGlobe, Princess Arita Anim, said their interest to join the ‘Arrive Alive’ campaign as their next project ahead of the election and yuletide was to help educate drivers, passengers and other road users to be discipline on the road.
The National Road Safety Authority (NRSA) in October launched the “Arrive Alive” campaign in the Western Regional capital, Takoradi, to help reduce road crashes ahead of the Christmas festivities.
The campaign which is known in local parlance as “Kodru Dwodwoo” will create awareness on the need for discipline on the part of road users by ensuring motorcycle riders wear crash helmets and passengers put on seat belts while drivers are encouraged to avoid needless maneuvering and stop packing of people in buckets of pickups among others to save lives.
At a duty visit by Miss Anim to the National Road Safety Authority, the Director of Planning and Programming, Ing David Osafo, Adonteng called on the public to help and support the AritaGlobe Foundation and listen to them wherever they go.
