MDPPA Takes Part In The National Safety Kids Celebration

The Motorcycle Development Program participants Association (MDPPA) took part in the celebration of the National Safe Kids Week, held every third week of June as proclaimed by Presidential Proclamation 1307, on June 14 to 20v,2014. Safe Kids Philippines (SKP) led in the celebration in cooperation with the Global Road Safety Partnership Philippines (GRSPP,) Department of Health (DOH), Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Public Works and Highway, Metro Manila Development Authority, SM Mall of Asia and SM Cares.

This child injury prevention program which commenced in 2006 has brought awareness to help continue the work on keeping children safe from all forms of unintentional injuries in the home, on the road and in school.

The culminating event was held on June 20 at the Music Hall of the Mall of Asia (MOA) in Pasay City. SKP’s beneficiary schools presented the advocacy for child safety through the Jingle Singing and the Slogan Contests among students from SKP beneficiary cities with the theme: "Promote, Preserve and Practice INGAT BATA! Continuing safety at home, on the road and in school!"

More than 300 school children, supporters and guests from government, private companies as well as non-government organizations were treated with songs and dances. The children also received tokens from the sponsors. Before the program ended, MDPPA distributed school supplies to the children.
