The graduate who saw himself through school with the haircutting skill added that he made it a point of duty to cut the kids' hairs as he sadly couldn't help his mother while she was alive.
The kindhearted man bemoaned the current living conditions of IDPs, stressing that they barely had enough to eat, let alone be able to afford normal haircuts.
How he goes about the haircut
David explained that he is not financially buoyant and as such arrives at the IDP camp sometimes in a borrowed car, other times in the company of friends who also have the volunteer mindset.
The young man in the future wants to equip young willing minds with the barbing skill at no cost to them as a way of empowering people.
