The Wall of Kindness has finally made its appearance in Hyderabad, aiming to help the poor. It is a charity initiative which started in Iran and is now visible in the city, restoring a faith in humanity.
Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) joined hands with the residents of Rajendranagar to kickstart the initiative in the city. The structure has been designed in a manner where the homeless and downtrodden can look for snippets of kindness in the form of old clothes, footwear and blankets donated by the people. The move is based on a ‘Take what you need and leave what you don’t’ concept.
An official of GHMC said, “People can leave old clothes, footwear, blankets and other items that can be taken by anyone and no questions will be asked. Anything that you do not need at home, even books for children or even food, can be kept on the wall”.
The step is going to help the homeless who cannot afford to buy things on their own. Through the wall of kindness, they can now look for different things which they need.
The wall is covered with a colourful graffiti with nails embedded to hold clothes or bags.
“In most households, old clothes usually pile up in wardrobes for years and in some cases, they are donated to domestic help. But with this unique initiative, people out on the roads, who actually need these things and have no other option, can get them without having to beg,” he added.
