The world is full of misery. Poor, hungry people who are struggling to live, struggling to get a morsel to eat. It becomes imperative, for the privileged to lend a helping hand and support them. A small act of kindness can make a huge difference in someone else’s life.
Here is one in the Hyderabad with the motto which appears on the walls: “leave if you do not need” and “take it if you need”
The GHMC has come up with a unique solution for those who want to make a difference in others’ lives, but do not know how to go about doing it. The concept of the Wall of Kindness is simple. Anybody who wishes to donate anything, from clothes to shoes to blankets to books to utensils can leave the stuff on the wall. Whoever has a need for any of the products can just walk up to it and pick it up.
Keeping in mind the number of people who pass by, GHMC Rajendranagar zonal commissioner S Srinivas Reddy and his team selected the two spots at Rajendranagar. Srinivas Reddy is planning to have another two or three such places by June 11th, where people can show their kindness. The concept is expected to be implemented all over the city.
“Those who do not need a set of clothes, or other useful items, can deposit it on these hangers on the Wall of Kindness, and the needy can take whatever they want. Citizens are also depositing books, toys, footwear, utensils and more”, said Mr. Srinivas Reddy, South Zone Commissioner.
Officials are also putting up sheds to ensure that people’s kindness is not dampened by the rain, Considering the rainy season.
