Gathering, Vigil, Walk, Tree planting,
ASIRT Kenya partnered with the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) to commemorate the day. A procession of road crash survivors, family members, government officials and the general public walked through the capital city of Nairobi. Activities included testimonials by survivors and family members who have lost loved ones, speeches from government officials and other stakeholders and candle lighting. A first response demonstration was conducted to educate participants. Family members carried portraits of their loved ones who had lost their lives through road crashes. Trees were also planted in memory of the lives lost.
