My husband and our two children died in a car accident seven years ago,before this happened our business and concern for making money was all we live for and never really cared about other values in life But since the loss of my family,i have found a new desire to assist helpless families for now i have noneof my own, i have been helping orphans in orphanages/motherless homes before the death of my family. I have also donated some money for humanitarian needs in Sudan, SouthAfrica, Cameroon, Brazil,and some Asian countries,only recently I saw on television the colossal loss of properties and livelihood people in Canberra, Australia through fire. I was moving with great pity and compassion that I decided to make thiscontribution on assisting people over there, I kept $US12,000,000.00Million whichis the last on my wealth in a long-term deposit in aFinance/security company in Europe which i promised to donate to any hospital that could cure my cancer but the doctor just told me that i havejust some few months to live and i have deceide to help thisvictims that need it for a better life,i'm in a hospital where I havebeen undergoing treatment for oesophagus cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors/private nurse have told me that I have only few months to live, it is my last wish to see this money distributed to victims of the fire outbreak in Australia and other charity organization because relatives and members of my husband 'sfamily have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, Icannot live with the agony entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the funds and distributes it accordingly. Use your judgment to distribute the money and keep 10% of it to yourself.
