I am Mrs. Melissa Edwards, widow to Mr. Andre Edwards, My Late 
Husband and I arrived in Ghana from New Zealand following the establishment

of Ghana National Petroleum Corporation in 1983. 
My Late Husband was a petroleum Engineer, thus reached an agreement with 
 Ghana National Corporation (GNC) along with a number of foreign firms like

the  US-based Amoco, Petro Canada International etc; to prospect in ten 
 offshore blocks between Ada and the western border with Togo in 
the Tano River Basin, and Diamond Shamrock in the Keta Basin 
 We also invested in the then lucrative Cocoa sector through the Ghana 
Divesture Agency. 
My Late Husband dedicated his life to helping the underprivileged here in 
Ghana, he built a Medical Clinic that cared for Orphanages and for
treatment of the sick where Government Hospitals were deficient. 
Two years ago he was diagnosed of having cancer, when his cancer situation 
deteriorated   we visited The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer
Centre in Texas 
USA, his health situation worsened when we arrived home in Ghana and died a
month later 
April 26th and we had no child, his death created sadness and loneliness in
my life like I 
have never known, I lived all my life with him and I have never been the 
same since he died, all these problem culminated into serious illness and
health situation has been very badly affected. 
As a result of my illness I could not handle our businesses and there was 
an attempt by some individuals and staff of our Company who worked for my
Late Husband to collaborating and divert our hard earned money thus I
decided to ship most of our valuables 
to Europe including the sum of US$3.2 Million, I have been diabetic, my 
Doctor (Dr Fred Hilfard) has expressed his concern that my liver was 
affected, I am afraid I may not live too long. 
Considering how some of these Ghanaians has treated me and having 
sent all my Late Husband's money to Europe and my fear that I may die on a 
date I don't know, I decided to make a choice that the money be directed to

an honest Humanitarian or a believer in helping me make efficient use of 
the money even if I die, from my experience in life I found that material 
acquisitions does not give happiness in it's entirety, but joy and
contentment in what 
we have and the desire to give a helping hand to the NEEDY gives more joy.
I am still sick and now temporarily live here at the General Hospital in
Accra Ghana 
I need your open heartedness to stand in as next of kin or beneficiary, to 
whom I can entrust this money such that it is used to better the lives of 
these people in desperate need of help, please indicate your deep minded 
willingness to help Children without parents, destitute, Orphanages and the

sick and I shall nominate you as the trusty and shall inform my 
Late Husband's Lawyer of all proceedings; this is necessary in case I die. 
You can call me through my Doctor's telephone Dr Fred Hilfard: 00 233 243 
908 298, the money can be reinvested in your choice business and the profit
continually used for Charity, the choice is open, please call and we can
discuss it.
Mrs. Melissa A.K Edwards.
