Hello Friend, My name is Edward Hastrup I run a Humanitarian Organisation/Orphanage home that caters for Children who have no homes .I have been doing this for some years now with my Wife,Jane Hastrup,and Few close friends of mine (Jenny Scoggins and Michael Donald ). The name of My organization is Edward Hastrup Orphanage center, based in the city of Lancs , England , UK here. I want you to know that Thousands of childrenâ€™s lives were lost recently ,when this deadly volcano came up and destroyed so many cities in Ecuador ,thousands of children were left homeless recently in Ethiopia ,Africa when this Deadly flood swept across the country .Again severe watery diarrhea had spread and killed so many children in Northern Australia .This are all peoples Children just like me and you , who have been nurturing dreams of becoming someone great someday. It is because of the above sad experiences in the lives of so many children that we came together few years ago ,to set up this foundation (Edward Hastrup ORPHANAGE HOME ),with the aim of catering for this Children, and given them a new sense of belonging , we feed , house them, and give them a new future, which they taught they have lost finally . God had been so good, and our Orphanage works had been growing steadily this past few years. We have been able to build Orphanage home in South Africa, we have set up a catering center for the children in Ecuador. We are set to do even more, since there have been increase in the number of children suffering from neglect. As a result of this great works and because people want to be a part of making this children happy(after all it is more blessed to give than to receive, and again ,it is not how long we live that matters and will always be remembered , BUT IT IS JUST the number of lives we are able to touch with the few years we have to live that matters , and will be remembered forever.),more personalities and Companies in Australia are ready to give something to improve the life of this children.The problem we are facing right now with this people, who want to donate something to this Orphanage Children, is that most of them are willing to donate something only through money order or cashiers check, which is difficult to cash here in UK THEREFORE WE ARE LOOKING FOR A GODFEARING ,HONEST AND RELIABLE REPRESENTATIVE IN THE AUSTRALIA ,WHO WILL BE WORKING FOR US AS A PART TIME WORKER.WE ARE WILLING TO PAY 10 PERCENT OF ANY MONEY WE RECEIVE TO THIS REPRESENTATIVE. I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT ACCORDING TO OUR ORPHANAGE POLICY AND RULES WITH WHICH WE OPERATE,10 PERCENT OF ANY MONEY RECEIVED GOES TO OUR REPRESENTATIVE,THE OTHER MONEY IS USED IN PAYING THE SALARY OF OUR VARIOUS STAFFS AND GENERAL UPKEEPS ,AND THEN THE REMAINING PERCENTAGE IS CHANNELED INTO TAKING CARE OF THIS CHILDRENS VARIOUS NEEDS. Do understand that the cost of coming to the Australia and getting all this money that had been donated ,is very expensive and time consuming, therefore we are working on building an Orphanage home very soon in the Australia, and operating from there. These Donations are in Money order, cashierâ€™s check or a special financial facility such as, Equity Line of Credit, Business Line of Credit. or CREDIT CARD. and they would come to you in your name, if you are willing to assist as representative for this Children, so all you need do is cash the money order,deduct your percentage and Western Union Charges, then wire the rest back to us. You are to receive the Money order or cashier's check payment which will be sent to you by the FedEx or UPS from this great DONORS, then you are to take it to your bank account to enable you cash it ,and send the money back to us , via Western Union money transfer .
