#SaveKidsLives Campaign Exceeded 600,000 Signatures

09-07-2015

Because 500 children die and thousands more are injured every day on the roads worldwide, the UN launched a global road safety campaign  to #SaveKidsLives.

In November 2015, governments around the world will meet in the Second Global High Level Conference on Road Safety to discuss the most urgent issues threatening the world’s roads. That’s why the UN launched the #SaveKidsLives petition to put the safety of children on the priority list of this meeting.

The petition target, which was first set at 100 000 signatures at the beginning of the campaign, was exceeded to reach more than 600 000 signatures. So a new goal is set: 1 000 000 signatures before November!

A few Lebanese leaders also signed the petition, including General Aoun, Minister of Social Affairs Rachid Derbas, the Minister of Justice Achraf Rifi and the Minister of Public Works and Transport Ghazi Zeaiter.

Sign the petition and add your voice to the rest of the world’s in demanding better safety for children on the road!
