Changing lives one cut at a time

Coralie Allen, owner of The Kindest Cut salon in Sydney Australia for over 14 years, is in Samoa on a mission.

She is at the Campus of Hope, home to children surivovors of violence and sexual abuse.  

This is Coralie’s second time at the Campus, offering free haircuts for the children survivors thereby Changing Lives One Haircut, One Conversation, One Prayer at a time.  

In January, Coralie visited with a friend and she vowed to return.

It was obvious as Coralie cut each child’s hair that she had her heart in her hands.  The physical touch, the big hugs, the silent tears.  

Her action speaks of love, making the children feel loved.

Assisting Coralie was her brother Robbie and a good friend Uso. With scissors and clippers, the trio worked through half the children on the first day, with the rest to be attended to later in the week.

And that is not all.  

Coralie has also got the support of her church in Sydney, the Faith City Canterbury, friends and supporters, to fundraise and to donate towards food and other supplies to assist with the children’s daily needs.

Changing Lives One Haircut, One Conversation, One Prayer at a time is Coralie Allen’s mission.

“This is my second time at the Campus and I will keep coming back,” she said.

S.V.S.G. President Siliniu Lina Chang was at the Campus to witness Coralie’s labour of love.  

“Thank you so much Coralie, your church, family and friends who got behind you in support of your mission in Samoa,” she said. 

“Thank you also for supporting the nofotane women by buying the Nofotane Products.  Keep on reaching out to the vulnerable members of the community and share God’s love.”
