WEB DESK: Karachi followed Peshawar and Lahore as ‘walls of kindness’ began propping up at the restive port city.
The wall invites people in the neighbourhood to hang clothes, food and other necessities for the underprivileged.
The initiative is citizen led. Walls have been set up at Defence Housing Authority (DHA), North Nazimabad and Malir.
About 60.19 percent of Pakistan population live below the poverty line.
The wall has been created at ‘Nad e Ali’ square in Jafar e Tayyar area of Malir by Khair-ul-Aman foundation.
Two A Level students set up a wall outside their school.
The green and orange wall outside Gate 3 of Saint Patrick’s High School has words ‘Wall of Help’ and ‘Deewar-e-Zaroorat’, written over it.
A third wall was seen outside Iqra University at North Nazimabad. It has piles of used shirts and dresses hanged for the needy.
The idea of ‘Wall of Kindness’ was originated in Iran in December 2015, according to BBC. Although it is still unknown who started the idea but it is taking root across the country and crossing borders.
The idea reached China as well. But less than 10 days after it inaugurated the Wall of Kindness- the authorities closed the collection point down after locals complained that the site had become a huge mess.
