A collection that will try to collaborate with cancer patients in Gandulfo is what the Rotary Club Lomas Este is preparing for November 26 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Residents can visit the headquarters located at Avenida Almirante Brown 2163, Lomas to donate locks of hair that will be used to make wigs.
The “Anais Hair Collection, Shared Locks” is the first of this style undertaken by the Rotary Lomas Este thanks to the joint work with the NGO Doná Cabello Argentina which has national reach.
“With this initiative we want to provide emotional support to that person with cancer. Therefore, the collection will be for the patients of Gandulfo, who will be able to contact the national NGO to request a wig. In fact, we have already contacted some patients of the lomas hospital with Doná Cabello Argentina to place the order,” he explained. Valeria Sarabiathe person in charge of organizing this activity in Rotary.
The name of the proposal is named after Anais in reference to Sarabia’s cousin: “She was the one who encouraged me to do this in Lomas since as a girl she decided to donate a lock of her hair to help.”
What Rotary is going to do after the collection is take all the donations to Baradero, which is the place where the NGO has its headquarters: “The interesting thing about this is that although we think about the project for the patients of Gandulfo, the people of Lome “Those who collaborate have to know that they are going to help people from all over the country and not just a local sector.
The important thing about the collection is that you can also find a way to participate because you don’t necessarily need to donate a lock of hair, you can also collaborate in another way: “If you don’t have long hair you can help by donating.” reinforced threads in brown tones, paper tape 1.5 or 2 centimeters wide, fabrics to make turbans because each turban takes 1/2 meter, they must be elasticized (modal), shampoo, conditioner, products to wash and condition wigs “.
With this initiative we want to provide emotional support to that person with cancer. For this reason, the collection will be for Gandulfo patients, who will be able to contact the national NGO to request a wig. In fact, we have already contacted some patients from the Lomas hospital with Doná Cabello Argentina to place the order.
Those who can donate hair have the option of bringing the hair that day or having one of the stylists who will collaborate with Rotary perform the haircut on the spot.
The minimum size of the lock is 25 centimeters long, it must be healthy hair and can be of any color: gray, fantasy, natural, dyed. All the hair can be donated or just a strand and the cut that will be made must be straight.
“Everyone who donates goes with a first and last name to inform who the people who collaborated are. Then, at the same time as receiving the diagnosis, the patient can request the wig without having to go to the moment of hair loss, which is part of the treatment.” “Sarabia explained.
The way to access these wigs is by going directly to the NGO located in Baradero where there are hundreds of wigs to choose from and try on: “The other way to access a wig is to call where you will ask for measurements, hair color and other information. so that the patient receives the order at home and in this case the only thing they have to pay is the postal shipping.
The wigs are loaned for the time that the patient must wear them and then they are returned so that the NGO can put them in condition in case they need to be reconditioned so that another applicant can use them.
