A Brooklyn hairdresser who knows what it's like to start life in a new country has opened his heart and his home to immigrants seeking asylum in New York, reports ABC 7.

For 30 years, Juan Sanchez has been helping men, old and young, look their best. Illegals and refugees - free of charge.

He was a hairdresser in Venezuela before seeking asylum in the US and settling in New York. He now works in Bushwick at the Central Latino Barbershop. This job helps him support his wife and children. However, his family grows with each new bus of migrants, he does not see these people as strangers, so he seeks to help them.

“I also come from a humble family,” Sanchez said. “Now I am able to pay rent and all my expenses, and now I want to help others do the same.”

Sanchez, 51, offers refugees a free haircut and a roof over their heads.

Currently, he has housed seven migrants in his modest apartment. Once they find permanent housing and work, he intends to host other refugees.

“When I see Venezuelans forced to leave their country because they need a job, they need food, then I consider it my duty, as a Venezuelan, to make sure that they are all right,” Sanchez said.

For Thanksgiving, Sanchez will invite to his table all the hungry migrants who would like to celebrate their first Thanksgiving in America with turkey and their favorite Venezuelan side dishes.

“I would like to ask for health on this day, so that God blesses us,” he said.
