    Hairdresser Heals Haiti Quake Victims


    Hairdresser Has a Healing Touch

    I’m convinced Claudia Martinez is a 31-year-old hairdresser and Angel from God, sent to help heal victims of the devastating Haiti earthquake. We all know we can make a difference in people’s lives and hairdressers can see this many times over in a days work.

    “Hairdresser From Heaven”In looking through news articles today I came across this piece that told the story of this one little person making a real difference in people’s lives who happens to be a hairdresser.

    Claudia Martinez goes to The Dario Contreras trauma hospital in Santo Domingo daily. Santo Domingo is in the Dominican Republic which borders Haiti where over 150 Haitians have been brought to be treated at the trauma unit. Armed with a jar of petroleum jelly, brightly colored elastic bands and a comb, she makes patients feel better by combing and braiding their hair. She says she wants to make people feel “clean and a little bit better.”

    Claudia learned back in 1992 of the value that a hairdresser can bring to others who are down and out. Her cousin was in an accident that put her in the hospital for sometime. Claudia said, “One day I started to comb her hair and she said it made her feel so much better, after that, I kept coming.

    Even though she doesn’t speak Creole, the Haitians native language, she communicates with gestures and smiles.There is a blessing for the hairdresser as well as the patient. When you know you have made someone else feel better, you feel better! Simple!

    Hairdressers have a great job!
