On Thursday September 15, some 50 children from the Darussalam Orphanage, Kampung Melayu Sungai Rapat, were treated to a free haircut courtesy of Euphoria Hair and Beauty Academy. The event was part of the academy’s community project aimed at strengthening bonds between teachers, students and the community at large.
Managing Director, Ena Farizan Dato’ Roshidi said that the teaching academy would provide free haircuts for orphans twice a year at selected orphanages.
“Instead of donating food or cash we decided to do something different this time around. I’m sure the kids loved it,” said Ena to Ipoh Echo. “The practical lessons would help students to hone their hair-cutting skills thus reducing our dependence on replicas,” she posited.
Norizan Razali, the orphanage warden, expressed her gratitude for the kind gesture. She hoped other private institutions would emulate the academy’s altruistic effort.
