Port Blair, Jan 12: The NGO ‘Seeds of Hope’ has appreciated the eleven year old Island girl, Betty Susan Jacob for her generous hair donation for the cancer patients. It was in October 2020 that Betty had donated her hair for the third time in a row, thus making her eligible to claim being the youngest hair donor to have donated hair three times.

It was first at the age of four that Betty donated her hair for the first time to Cancer Institute, Adiyar, which was followed by hair donation at the age of 7 years to Madat Foundation. Betty was expecting to donate early this year but due to Corona Virus Pandemic, things had got delayed. Finally the generous Andaman girl made it again in October 2020 at the age of 11 years, when she could donate her 14 inches long hair.

Betty, a student of Carmel Sr. Sec. School is the daughter of Biju Jacob and Swapna Jacob, who had inspired her about the good deeds that can be done by donating one’s hair to the needy.
