“My older daughter Mishika, now eight years old, donated her hair in November 2019. There was a campaign in her school and she wanted to donate her hair. She used to talk about it at home with us. My son used to listen to that and started telling us that he too wanted to give his hair like his sister. I was touched and started growing his hair,” the Gulf News report quoted Neha Jain as saying.

“We are growing his hair until it reaches a good length for donation. He is not complaining about his long hair. My children have inspired me so much that I too donated my hair for this good cause,” she added.
