Campus of Hope children get free haircuts

More than 50 children at the Samoa Victims Support (S.V.S.G.) Group Campus of Hope at Tuanaimato had free haircuts from the Kindest Cut campaign from Sydney, Australia.

This is the fourth time the founder of the campaign, Coralie Allen, has visited Samoa to provide free services for children under the care of S.V.S.G.

Ms. Allen was assisted by her friend, Pati from Blades Barbershop, Amanda Brownley and Peata Pula, owner of Peata’s Salon with her daughter, Aaone.

“We had the chance to cut over 50 children’s hairs and straightened over 25 girls from 9:30am to 3:30pm.

“It’s just so good to be back in Samoa and to be able to come and bless all of these beautiful children. 

“They all couldn’t wait to run to the bathroom after their hair was done to see their new hairstyle,” she said.

Ms. Allen said it was a blessing to be able to bless the children and show them God’s Love through a simple haircut. 

“We look forward to seeing them every time we come to Samoa - we will be doing a mission for the Campus of Hope later in the year to help support the amazing work they do for these children and families in dire need.”

The founder of Kindest Cut campaign also had the chance to visit a family of nine — who lost their home to a fire caused by a mosquito coil — at Vaitele.

“We offered the family AUD$600 (T$1,102) to assist with rebuilding their home. I know it is going to cost a lot more than that to build a new home but it will definitely help them out a lot to get it started.

“We thank God that no one was harmed.”

The Kindest Cut campaign was established in Australia to provide free haircuts for the homeless people with the sole purpose of changing lives - one haircut, one conversation, one prayer at a time to simply help those and love those in need.
