Hanan Hamid, A College Student Who Was Trolled For Selling Fish, Donates Rs 1.5 Lakh Towards Kerala Flood Relief
A picture of Hanan selling fish went viral last month, and she was trolled on social media by those who deemed it a publicity stunt.
A college student who was trolled viciously on social media for selling fish, Hanan Hamid has donated Rs 1.5 lakh towards the Kerala flood relief efforts.
A picture of her selling fish went viral last month, and even though Hanan explained that she does odd jobs, including selling fish, to pay for her education and the needs of her family, she was trolled and the picture of her selling fish was deemed a ‘publicity stunt’.
Hanan told The News Minute, “I am merely giving back what I received from the people. Now they are all suffering and it is the least I can do.”
According to Hanan, when she was being trolled, certain well-wishers deposited money in her account. “This added up to Rs. 1.5 lakh. Now the people who helped me are facing huge losses and I want to give back their money,” Hanan said.
“I have been trying to deposit the money into the CM’s relief fund. But I’ve had no mobile connectivity and the banks too have been shut. So I will either transfer the amount tomorrow or directly meet and hand over the cheque to the CM in two days,” she added.
