Save kids' lives
500 children are killed on roads worldwide. Every day.
That's about 17 classrooms of children dying. Every day.
This is a daily catastrophe of the worst kind, that goes largely unreported in the world news. Yet it is the worst kind of death. Sudden, too soon and wholly unjust. It wrecks families and communities. Many more children suffer life-changing injuries, including head injury, paralysis, and limb loss.
Many more children are forced to breathe polluted air caused by traffic, giving them respiratory diseases.
As children get older, the risks keep getting bigger. Road death is the biggest killer of young people (aged 15 to 29) worldwide.
