Dearest Friend I am Mrs.Diana Ruka from Libya. I am married to Late Malam Jamail Ruka ofblessed memory who is an oil explorer in Saudi-Arabia and Libya for twelve years before he died in the year 2000. We were married for twelve years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.Since his death I too have been battling with both Cancer and fibroid problems.When my late Husband was alive he deposited a substancial amount of money in millions of dollars with a Finance Firm oversea. Recently, my doctor told me that I have only six months to live due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to either a charity/orphanage home or devoted God fearing individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want this organization or individual to use this money in all sincerity to fund charity homes (motherless homes),orphanages, widows.I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are into radical organisation and I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an Unholy manner. Hence the reasons for this bold decision. Please, pray for me to recover as your paryers will go a long way in uplifting my spirit.I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health,because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development.As soon as I receive your reply. I shall give you further directives on what to do and how to go about actualising this project. I will also issue a letter of authority to the financial firm authorizing them that the said fund Have being willed to you and a copy of such authorization will be forwarded to you. I want you to always pray for me right now i am on tears because of condition. Any delay in your reply will give room in sourcing for an organization or devoted Individual for this same purpose. Until I hear from you by email my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders. Remain blessed and God bless you and your family. Mrs Diana Ruka.
