Donating Hair in Hong Kong: Hair today, wig (for those in need) tomorrow!

One day, years ago in a different country, #LocalHoodofficial volunteer Shobhana's older one came back home from school one day and told her that one of her teachers had chopped off her long hair. A few weeks back, her daughters wanted to do donate her tresses in Hong Kong. Being in a new city, Shobhana went researching and in this article tells us about the whats and hows of donating hair in Hong Kong.

A few years ago, my older one came back home from school and told me that one of her teachers had chopped off her long hair! "She's donated it all to cancer patients, mamma!" She reported excitedly.


Then came her next query, "Can we also do that?"


I promised her then that I'd research and find out what exactly this entails. I think then her hair wasn't long enough, so she decided to grow her hair out a bit more with the intention of donating it one day.
