The Church Sponsors Drivers Safety Program held in Khampho Thom, Cambodia

The Police and the Ministry of Cults and Religion in Khampong Thom were invited to attend a Driver's Safety Program

Free helmets were given to all in attendance at a Driver's Safety Program held in Khampong Thom Province. Colonel Nhem Chunly, chief of police in Khampong Thom, and Mr. Tan Taichraon, the provincial director of the Ministry of Cults and Religion, invited 100 men and women under their direction to receive driver’s safety instruction. Mrs. Lim Sokchea, senior advisor of the Correlation of Road Safety, provided the training and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints provided the helmets and refreshments.

The prime minister of Cambodia has made driver's safety a priority for the country this year.

Colonel Nhem Chunly said, "Now we have one teacher to teach us about the traffic rules, but from this training, we will have 100 teachers to train our families and communities."

He also stated, "As law enforcers, we need to show people that we teach and live the law."

Mrs. Solchea, teacher of the training, said, "There needs to be Driver's Safety Trainings in more of the provinces of Cambodia." She expressed desire to the Church for more of these programs to be done throughout Cambodia in the future. 

Those in attendance at the training were thrilled to receive their helmets and gave thanks to the Church for doing the program in Khampong Thom, and providing them the opportunity to participate.
