Heineken’s General Manager in Timor, Dinay Matur, said the company provided the helmets to help support the capacity of POLTRANS’ road safety program.

He said the company considered helmets to be the main factor in helping save lives and preventing serious injury.

“The company also gives importance to safety road and therefore we decided to provide these items,” he said.

In addition to the helmets, Heineken also donated 1000 books, 1000 pens, seven laptops and a digital camera.

Matur said the books and pens were distributed to students at schools during sessions conducted by POLTRANS at schools to raise awareness about traffic regulations.

He was optimistic that the distribution of helmets would help contribute to saving lives.
