Kochi: Noushad, a humble Kerala textile dealer at the busy and bustling Broadway Street, here, has donated all dress material purchased for sale during Eid al Adha to the flood-affected people.

"I did the same when floods struck the state last year. I am doing it again. All that I have is given by the Almighty. I am feeling happy," Noushad is heard saying in the video, which went viral on the social media on Sunday.

Prophet Ibrahim, Hager and Prophet Ismael (Peace be upon all of them) are revered by the followers of all major religions of the world.

While Kerala celebrated Eid al Adha on Sunday with Muslims in the Arab world, those in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh on Monday August 12, 2019.

In the video Noushad is seen carrying one of the sacks of dresses to a waiting vehicle.

Till now, Naushad has donated 10 sacks of ready-made dresses to volunteers, representing various agencies engaged in social work, to help the flood-hit people staying at various relief camps in the district.

Even though no death has been reported from the Ernakulam district, 22,678 people are housed in 118 relief camps.
