In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is hereunder:

Yes, you can give interest money received from bank to your needy brother without making any intention of reward. To avoid making him feel bad, you don’t need to tell him that it is interest money. The recipient is allowed to spend it in all his needs.   

And Allah knows best
