This is a very inspiring story about the oldest barber in Kurdistan, Uncle Zaher.

Zaher House is 4KM away from his barbershop and with the passage of time his pain became worse and he wasn’t able to walk to his shop.
His friend Sami from a neighbor village used to visit him from time to time in his barbershop.
Sami visited Zaher and surprised that his shop is closed, The neighbors told Sami that Zaher hasn’t opened his shop for a few months, then he knew that something bad happened to his friend.
Sami went to Zaher’s house and found him lying on the bed unable to move.
Zaher told Sami about his pain suffering then suddenly Sami said: “don’t worry I will back to you with a solution to your arthritis and back pain soon”.
"Zaher was disappointed and believing that he became aged and nothing going to help him to regain his healthy body again"
