As Delhi continues to brave the winter chill, a Jorbagh resident received a parcel from her friend in Hong Kong. Lee Wing Yam, a graphic designer, had sent 35 pairs of gloves — colourful, striped and with fleece lining.
“Yam asked me to give it to those Delhiites who do not have enough warm clothes,” says the Jorbagh resident. She has requested that her name not be printed for this article because “the gloves are not coming from me”.
Next, she went out with her husband and passed on the gloves to street children and homeless adults in the area around Jorbagh and Lodhi Garden. “The kids put the gloves straight away with a big smile,” she says. Some gloves were also given to chowkidars in Jorbagh colony. “They were very pleased and said ‘Thank you’.”
Our citizen in Jorbagh was thrilled that amid the opulence and plenty of Hong Kong, her friend had remembered that some of Delhi’s children might be battling a cold winter. “Yam went to considerable expense to make this special gesture.,” the Jorbagh-ite says. She has taken photographs of the children in their new gloves and plans to e-mail them to the friend in Hong Kong.
