Zhuo Yihang, a post-90s man from Cili County, Hunan Province, found that the left-behind elderly in rural areas had been troubled by the inconvenience of haircuts. Encouraged by the idea of caring for the elderly, he began to give free haircuts to the elderly in nearby towns from May 2020.
Half of his working days have been devoted to free haircuts for the elderly with mobility problems. As the scope of services expanded from nearby villages to larger areas, he gave free haircuts more diligently. The frequent visits to villages made him familiar where there are more elderly people in need of haircuts.
“Each time I went to the villages, I was moved by the smiles of the old people”, he said.
