An organization that helps children with cancer organized a hair drive in a Sarajevo mall. Donated hair will be used for making wigs for children who lost hair from chemo.
Lejla Kamerić, the head of Srce za djecu koja boluju od raka u FBiH organization, told Klix that the drive organized in SCC was inspired by the fact that a significant number of children with cancer come from poor families that can’t afford real hair wigs: “It is a particularly sensitive issue for girls. A lot of people call and write; a lot of them want to donate hair.”
Hair eligible for donation must be at least 30 cm long and chemically untreated.
Some fifty children are diagnosed with cancer in Bosnia every year. Three in four on average win the battle against the disease.
