KOCHI: Hanan, 21-year-old college student from Kochi, who was trolled for selling fish to meet her educational needs, has now contributed Rs 1.5 lakh towards the Chief Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund.
She also requested people to donate for the relief work.
Hanan said the money was donated by various people after her struggle to fund her studies and take care of her family was widely shared on the social media. She also worked as an anchor and flower girl for programmes.
Her story had gone viral after a Malayalam daily reported her struggles. But, a section of social media users expressed doubts about her struggles and claimed it was “fake”.
She said, “I had got the amount from people and I am happy to give back the amount to the needy.”
