Srinagar: The ‘wall of kindness’, a charitable initiative for donating clothes to needy and poor, has reached Kashmir.
The charity wall, which was introduced in Iran and from there reached Pakistan and several other countries, has surprisingly surfaced on The Bund in Srinagar.
Behind the initiative, which has received applause from people on social media, is the Kashmir chapter of WhoisHussian, a charitable organisation inspired by Hazrat Hussain (RA) and spread in several countries.
On the wall people can keep clothes apart from other articles for the needy, who can pick them up without having to move from door-to-door.
The concept is based on anonymity, so that both the giver and sender remain anonymous without lessening dignity of people in need.
The wall, which is painted in black and white, has several hangers on which people can hang clothes.
“This initiative is just an introduction of #wallofkindness in #kashmir. We wish people especially youth to take up this initiative at mohalla levels and make this idea a common thing around us. #spreadlove #helpneedy#whoishussain,” wrote Abrar Ali on Facebook.
