In one of the hairdressers in Ivano-Frankivsk, women with cancer get haircuts, permanent make-up, manicures and pedicures for free.

Nadia Ostapenko, a permanent make-up artist, told about it to "Suspilne. Karpaty."

According to her, the employees of the salon want to support the visitors, lift their spirits during the illness. They plan several free services every week.

Nadia Ostapenko does permanent make-up for visitors, as most of them don't have eyebrows after chemotherapy.

To recap, a new charity initiative has been launched in Ukraine, which combines two useful causes: deforestation and assistance to children with cancer. Everyone can make a charitable contribution, 50 hryvnias, for one planted tree.

Foresters plant the forest for free, all funds immediately go to the wards of the Tabletochky Foundation, which has been helping children with cancer and their families for 10 years.
