Giving interest money to ‘Cancer research, UNICEF’ etc

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Assalaamu Alaykum,
If someone was to accumulate a small amount of interest from a bank account and therefore this interest needs to be discharged.
Would it be possible to give the interest money to a charity such as Cancer research, Unicef , etc, obviously with the intention of getting no reward as its interest money.
I would be grateful if you could confirm if this is permissible.
Jazakallah Khair

Walaikumussalam w w
Yes, it would be permissible.
