Kochi: Amid the crisis of flood and monsoon in Kerala, kind gestures from children are putting smiles back on people's faces. There are proud parents post pictures of their children breaking their piggybanks and donating their small savings to the chief minister's distress relief fund on Facebook.

Haroon and Diya, children of a Kochi-based couple Sidhique Mallassery and Fathima Siddique, decided to help out the flood-victims with their small contribution from their piggy banks. "For two days, our children saw us donating clothes and other things to the relief camps. While they came and asked me about giving their entire money from their 'baby bank' to the Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund, I was so happy. (Meanwhile, they didn't allow me to take money from their 'bank' when a small shortage came to buy fish.) Both of them kept counting the money, and it's Rs 2210. I know it's not a huge amount but they have done their part and we have decided to donate the money to CMDRF," Fathima said in her post.

 

She had also mentioned that there was a hate campaign going on against donating money to the fund. She had posted it with pictures of the children breaking their piggybanks.

Another student Aachu, son of Salish Syla and Syla Salish from Kozhikode on Sunday decided to donate the money kept for buying a study table to the fund. "He has broken the piggybank. It's a four-digit amount, which was kept to buy a study table. Now he decided to donate the money to relief fund," the Facebook post from Salish Syla read.
