Watch: Walls of Kindness in Hyderabad encourage people to leave what they don't need

In the city of Hyderabad, 'Walls of Kindness' appeared over the weekend. A joint effort of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) and the citizens of the Rajendranagar area, the 'Walls' encourage people to leave books, clothes, footwear and other old things for people in need.

Originating in Iran, the concept of the 'Wall of Kindness' reached India and travelled across of the North of the country under the name "Neki ki Deewar." Starting with Bhopal, the 'Wall' made its way to the states of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi-NCR, even spreading into Haryana briefly. Based off the concept "Take what you need, leave what you don't", these 'Walls' even inspired a movement in Iran called 'Payan-e Kartonkhabi', which involved placing fridges around the city where people could leave food for the homeless.

In Hyderabad, the initiative has been able to put up two such 'Walls', and the GHMC hopes to put up more soon.
