The Barber’s Truck

When Wasseim Sati brought his family to Christchurch, his dream was to give them a better life.
The talented barber from Jordan had an idea to start own business, operating out of a truck, which he was due to pick up on the day of the March 15 mosque attacks.
Wasseim was shot three times and left with life-threatening injuries. But he was rescued by a passing Kiwi tradesman whose bravery and quick thinking ensured Wasseim and others got safely to hospital within minutes of the attack.
Now a year on, thanks to the generosity of locals, Wasseim’s dream barber truck is about to be revealed.
