CANSA's Kindest Cut Wig Campaign

CANSA challenges you to join in the Kindest Cut Campaign - donate your hair or make an online donation via this project in order to supply wigs to cancer Survivors (patients).

Why do We Need Wigs?

For thousands of South African cancer patients diagnosed each year, hair loss becomes their heartbreaking reality. Help restore dignity and a sense of self-worth to those who have lost their hair during cancer treatment.

The number of wigs CANSA distributes through wig banks each year is dependent on the number of donations received.

CANSA relies on both human-hair donations, as well as financial contributions, as it can cost up to R2 000 to turn human and synthetic hair into just one wig. CANSA wig recipients are only required to pay a minimum donation of R100 for a wig.
