In a heartwarming gesture, Thamanna Manesh Kumar, a Class 5 student at The Indian School Bahrain (ISB), exhibited compassion by donating her 29-centimeter-long hair to cancer patients in Bahrain.

The 11-year-old avid reader has refrained from any significant haircut since 2021. She resides with her family in Juffair.

The benevolent act of donating hair holds significance for cancer patients undergoing mental and physical challenges due to their illness.

Thamanna’s donated hair will be used to craft wigs for individuals undergoing chemotherapy.

The hair was formally handed over to officials at the Bahrain Cancer Society in Adliya.

Expressing pride in their daughter’s understanding of such acts of kindness at a young age, Thamanna’s parents mentioned being inspired by other ISB students regularly engaging in similar noble endeavours.

ISB’s Honorary Chairman, Prince S. Natarajan, Honorary Secretary Saji Antony, and Principal VR Palaniswamy extended their congratulations to Thamanna for her remarkable act of kindness.
