Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) Mohmand Chapter in action. It along with the district administration and Lower Mohmand press club inaugurated a “wall of kindness”.
The wall is on the main Peshawar Bajaur Road at Lower Mohmand Ekka Ghund.
In this connection, a simple function was held where the wall of kindness was inaugurated by;
- Assistant Commissioner Lower Mohmand Touseef Khalid
- District Secretary PRCS Mohmand Fauzee Khan
- District Program Officer PRCS Mohmand, Irfan Ullah
- President Lower Mohmand Press Club Mehbob Sher
Assistant Commissioner Mohmand Touseef Khalid urged the people to donate used clothes for the homeless and the poor by dropping them at the wall.
He demanded the locals not to trash their used clothes, especially warm garments that can be used in winter.
“If you do not need it, leave it and if you need it, take it,” he told the audience.
Addressing on the occasion, PRCS Mohmand Chapter District Secretary Fauzee Khan said that at times a small act of kindness by someone gets an unexpected response from the public.
How does it work?
On the first day, he said that the people, who do not need their old clothes anymore, can drop them at the wall.
Laborers, the homeless, orphaned kids or anyone who cannot afford warm clothes to fight the winter chill can take these clothes.
He said that initially, the wall would continue to serve people in the Ekka Ghund area while the PRCS will plan to set up more such walls in the rest of the district.
“A few small steps like these will make you feel good about our district. People here need a little encouragement to do wonders,” said a local, Samiullah Khan.

To kick off the project, PRCS volunteers left their jackets, coats, and clothes on the hooks fixed on the wall.
Over the course of the day, those who needed these items silently took them without being noticed by anyone.
