First, I must apologies to you for using this medium to communicate to you about this project but it is of utmost importance hence time is of great essence.
My names are Ms.Elizabeth Freeman and I was married to Dr.Martin Freeman who worked with a major petroleum company in West-Africa for thirty years before he died on July 3, 2013 and we where married for 46 years without any children.
He died after a brief illness and when my late husband was alive, he informed me that he had deposited the sum of (USD$7.5 Million United States Dollars) with a bank to be used for charity purposes and also to start a foundation (Martin & Elizabeth Freeman Foundation) to help the less privilege and also donate to orphanages, research centers and widows propagating the word .
Why we took this decision is because we had agreed between me and my late husband that because of the terrible greediness and in fighting for wealth amongst his family, we should assign this project to someone without any direct links or association with the family as we did not want a situation where this money gets into the wrong hands of my husband's relatives hence the reason why we took this bold decision.
The sad news is that I know I would not last for long in this world due to terminal cancer hence having known my condition, I decided to donate this funds for humanity and also to assist in fighting the Ebola virus before it spreads into other parts of the world.
