BUDGAM The philanthropic initiative Wall of Kindness which started in Srinagar earlier has reached Budgam.
The facade of historic Imam Bargah has been turned into a charitable wall by the students of Maktab-e-Babul Ilem here, which is run by Anjuman Sharie Shian.
The welfare spot was set up with clothes being hung on a wall for the needy people.
The place welcomes both givers and takers. People can come and donate clothes for the ones who are in need of warm clothes this winter, said Dabirah Hassan, a student.
She said that in the first two days, many people turned up to donate clothes and several poor persons took them.
The best part about this wall is that both donor and recipient remain anonymous, said another student.
The students urged on people to donate clothes, which they no longer use, for those in need.
Budgam residents lauded the efforts of students saying that such steps must be appreciated and supported.
A local Ali Mohammad said that the Wall of Kindness is indeed a remarkable initiative to help the disadvantaged and needy people. It entails a good message and vibrant goal in the society, he said.
The Wall of Kindness was started in Srinagar early this week that took social media by storm and inspired Maktab students here to set up designate a similar spot for donations.
