I intend to give interest money i earned unknowingly in charity to the needful ones

Q:

Assalam-o-Alaikum! Sir,
My question is: i earned money by interest unknowingly, but Alhamdulillah within few weeks i was told that it is Sood and haram. So, i intended to give that money in charity to the needful ones, where currently i am living there’s no needful people Alhamdulillah they all are ” Sahib-e-Hesiyat”, but in my village there are many needful people so i thought to give them the money of interest.

Before coming into city i gave few thousands rupee to my mother to keep the on safe place so bcoz i could send the money there but told my mother to give exact 3 thousand to the needful ones there from the money i gave before coming here.

So is this okay bcoz i could not send the money of interest to my village but gave the same amount of interest money to the needful ones there?
