Dr. Farouk Shami, Chairman and Founder of Farouk Systems, Inc., went above and beyond to help storm-stricken residents in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura. His latest act of kindness includes delivering $4 million worth of Biosilk and CHI Haircare products to support relief efforts in Louisiana and Texas.
“We are here in Lake Charles, Louisiana to distribute hand sanitizer, beauty products and cleaning products,” said Dr. Farouk Shami, Founder and Chairman of Farouk Systems, Inc. “It’s about helping each other in a time of tragedy, and we’re doing our best to help anyone we can.”
According to the American Red Cross, around 8,000 homes were destroyed by Hurricane Laura while 500,000 homes were left without power. The Farouk Systems, Inc. supplies were presented to the City of Lake Charles Mayor Nic Hunter on Saturday, August 5th, and will also be distributed to the cities of Port Arthur and Beaumont in Texas.
“This has been an absolute ‘godsend’ to the city of Lake Charles,” said Mayor Nic Hunter. “Thank you, [Farouk Shami and Farouk Systems, Inc.] for taking care of our citizens here.”
This is not the first time the Houston-based haircare company has aided others. In 2020 alone, Farouk Systems, Inc. has already donated well over $1 million worth of hand sanitizer, haircare products and other needed items to Houston, Tomball, and Fort Bend County as well as frontline workers across the United States.
