Students from Pusat Ehsan Al-Ameerah Al-Hajjah Maryam in Kuala Belait visited a hair salon yesterday, led by the centre’s Manager Hamimah binti Sapar.

According to Widia Hairdressing and Beauty Salon Managing Partner Winnie Lo, opening the door to the differently abled individuals was the shop’s way of commemorating World Mental Health Day.

“The visit provided an opportunity for children with special needs to feel included in the community while spending time outside the centre and getting their hair trimmed,” she said.
