MOBILE WIG BANK
In order to travel through different parts of the state of São Paulo, wigs are given to patients who fight against cancer or lose their hair due to medical treatment. Truckvan has developed the first mobile wig bank in the world for NGO Cabelegria. The unit has a shelf with several models of wigs, countertops with mirror and access for people with reduced mobility.
“Our intention is to really offer patients a space where they can try and adjust the wigs in a cozy, relaxed and cheerful place. That’s why we created an atmosphere that brings the atmosphere of a beauty salon “, reveals Mariana Robrahn, founder of Cabelegria.
With the sponsorship of the Charitable Benefit Society Lacan (SABLacan), the mobile unit was inaugurated on October 8, 2016, during the 2nd Pedalada Rosa, organized by the Chemotherapy and Beauty Institute, and was parked in the Arcos Square, at the end of Avenida Paulista with Avenida Angelica.
“This project fills us with pride because we were looking for Cabelegria at the end of April and we approached SABLacan for this initiative to become reality and we are sure that the mobile wig bank will impact many lives and raise the self-esteem of thousands of people, “concludes the managing director of Truckvan, Alcides Braga.
