kindness-wall-in-kabulMembers of a civil societyinfo-icon group have set up a “wall of kindness” in capital Kabul for needy people to collect and keep clothes and other things left behind by others on the wall.


The message is simple: If your economic condition is good, come and hang some unwanted clothes and other things so poor people can benefit from them. The wall of kindness has been set up in Golayan area in the limits of the third police district of Kabul.
The organizers have written messages on the wall including: "If you don't need it, leave it. If you need it, take it." On the day one, many people left behind different kinds of materials, including clothes, trousers, coats and jackets and some were picked by poor people.
Nasima, a 12-year-old girl who with his mother visited the wall of kindness, chose a jacket and a fabric doll from the wall. She told Pajhwok Afghan News there were many people in Kabul who lacked clothes and if such efforts continued no one would be left without clothes.
The organizers urged civil society activists to erect similar walls in various parts of the city in order to promote the culture of charity and restore faith in humanity. A member of the group, Farzana Hussaini, said they planned to set up similar walls in various parts of the central capital.
