About The Video

Sherine Mathew shaved her head a month ago so that her hair could be turned into a wig for a cancer patient. A human hair wig can be as expensive as Rs. 30,000. There are people who are in need of it but can't afford it. Therefore, some NGOs have come forward to help. People voluntarily donate hair to these NGOs and the organization turns them into wigs, providing it to the people for free, who most need it the most. “It takes hair from about six people to make a single wig”, says Pankaj Bhupatkar, who has been in the wig-making business for 35 years. Bhupatkar makes wigs for sale. But he also works with NGO Madat Trust, creating wigs for free out of donated hair.
