Around 30 people came forward to donate their hair at a charitable hair donation event ‘Hair for Hope India’ for cancer patients at the Lighthouse Church in Dimapur on May 26 – 27.
This event is first of its kind in the North-Eastern region. The donated hair will be converted into wigs and donated to economically challenged chemotherapy patients.
Amen Jamir, the women behind this initiative said that losing her mother to cancer ignited her zeal to help cancer patients. “The Hair for Hope page which I came across on Facebook a few years back was the right place to volunteer,” she added. Since then, she has donated her hair twice.
The donated hair will be directly sent to Hair for Hope, Bangalore for further processing.
Women, young girls and also a young man donated their hair and pledged for lifetime donation at the event. All donors were felicitated with a certificate of appreciation from Hair for Hope, India.
