A haircut can change one’s personality and boost our self-confidence by a tonne. So, having hair that suits our characters seem pretty important. However, this is not always the case for everybody.

If you’re about to make a decision to switch up your hairstyle, Thailand’s From Angel Foundation can make your cut hair can go from being just trash to helping cancer patients in the country.

A happy heart is as important as medicine   

When fighting against a disease, medicine and treatment isn’t enough – one’s heart must be willing to fight too.

Cancer patients can lose their motivation to keep on going, especially after strenuous medical journeys that seem to have no end. However, their spirits can be lifted thanks to support from family and friends, as well as getting the opportunity to live life as a normal person.

Due to chemotherapy treatments, a lot of patients end up losing their hair. This can do a lot of damage to one’s confidence and self-worth, and things like wigs are not always accessible or affordable for many. 

Hair donations by Sale Here and From Angel Foundation

From Angel Foundation is stepping in to help by making easily accessible hair pieces especially for cancer patients. The foundation started when a member of the team wanted to donate her hair but didn’t know where to go – so, the organisation started and invited people who were interested in making wigs for cancer patients to join in.

In order to donate, the hair will have to be longer than 6-inches and be healthy without having gone through any chemical processes (such as hair dye) in the last 3 months. There will also be a ฿350 fee to get the hairpieces made.
