Walls of kindness
A couple of months ago, there came a trend, namely, ‘ The Wall of Kindness’, on social media. It was an initiative started in Iran where the well to do hang and leave their extra clothes, comforters, bags and sundries for the poor who don’t have any of that. It was a great trend and it was copied in Pakistan too.
In various cities, a number of NGOs and individual came forward and painted multitude walls as ‘ wall of kindness’. The start- up gained massive commendation and people willingly came forward and hung the stuff which was not of their use on these walls and all this resulted in benefit of poor people. People supported this idea for sometime but now I saw most of those walls empty and bare with nothing hanging there except the writing “Deewar e Meharbani”.
People should realize that it is a humanitarian venture and any support from them will result in benefit of a poor man and they should come forward and support it. They should keep it going and should not let it deteriorate like other good initiatives that started in our country, but lost their relevance within a few days & weeks. — Karachi
