The child’s mother chalks up the good deed to faith.

“Our faith teaches us that, you know, you do kind things and the right thing, not, you know, to get recognition, just because it is the right thing to do,” she said.

Meanwhile, the elderly woman says she is very grateful that the little girl did the right thing.
