Every year the world day of remembrance is marked on third Sunday of November to show our support, solidarity and commitment to the issue of road safety around the globe. This year it was marked on 15th November with the theme of “Remember . Support . Act”.
Each year we, Safe & Sustainable Travel Nepal (SSTN), organize various events and programs throughout Nepal engaging many stakeholders and people. However, this year, considering the risks of COVID spread, the events were limited to symbolic messages and events with limited participants only.
Only few events with people physically present at the event location were organized, with some social distancing and safety measures. As a symbolic gesture to show our support to the families of the victims of road traffic crashes and the people involved in rescue, cure, support and rehabilitation we urged our members, followers and general public to put on a frame to their facebook profile picture prepared by us.

We are thankful to everyone who have contributed individually and from organizations to mark the day even during the restrictions imposed by Corona Pandemic. We have seen that road crashes are still occurring and claiming lives and peace of people even with limited traffic on the roads. We need to understand that it’s not just the traffic on the road but our behavior and negligence (combined) that is causing the crashes. And so, we can prevent them and are ourselves responsible for that.
Stay Safe and Take Care
