As winters have arrived, residents from Sector-137 have warmed up to humanitarian cause. On Sunday, some volunteers from the sector came up with an initiative to extend support to the poor in fighting the winter chill.
These good samaritans have put up a steel almirah in the street to keep all the used clothes donated by the residents in it. The almirah is christened ‘Wall of Help’. The needy can come and collect any item of their requirement.
While urging the residents of the sector to donate the clothes, the volunteers cautioned them giving away dirty or torn clothes, which they said would not be picked by the intended beneficiaries. “Donate the clothes which can reused,” told them.
Explaining about the concept of the Wall of Help or Neki Ki Diwar, the volunteers said it was a selfless service where both the donors and the receivers remain anonymous as there won’t be any interaction between them. The former would donate reusable clothes while the latter would come to collect the items.
The receivers can come at a time of their convenience.
The residents, who are leading the initiative, said that the wall was ready and was open for all. Residents of high rises were informed about the initiative and requested to donate only usable and warm clothes.

The initiative is named as Wall of Help as it is aimed at helping the needy during all the unbearable weather condition. There are separate shelves in the almirah for keeping clothes for men, women and children so the receivers could find it convenient to pick them up.
