Over the weekend, hooks and hangers have appeared on the side of a Qingdao building under the words: “If you need it, take it.” This “wall of kindness,” the creation of local charity Chuangyi Workshop, invites passers-by to leave their spare warm clothes and encourages those who are in need to take them.
上周末,青岛一面墙上出现了挂钩和衣架,上面还写着:“如果你有需要,就把它带走。”这面“友善之墙”是当地慈善组织创意工厂发起的,鼓励路人捐赠他们闲置的保暖衣服,也倡导有需要的人将这些衣服带走。

“友善之墙”(wall of kindness)上挂着人们捐赠的闲置衣物(spare clothes),有需要的无家可归的人和贫困人士可以将它们带走。

据悉“友善之墙”起源于伊朗。2015年冬,伊朗遭受严重寒潮(cold wave)和经济危机(a troubled economic situation),无家可归人员急剧增加。当地行善者(philanthropists)通过打造简单的“友善之墙”来帮助那些流浪者,之后“友善之墙”迅速在伊朗全国蔓延。

“友善之墙”上面写着“如果你有需要,就把它带走。”(If you need it, take it.)这面墙使得人们有渠道去捐献,也使得需要帮助的人更有尊严地接受帮助(it’s more dignified for people to receive kindness)。

目前,“友善之墙”已经在我国郑州、青岛、成都等多个城市出现。
