I was born in Liverpool, England, I was married to Mr. Amos Thomas director PHP Industries United Kingdom. We were married for 36 years without a child. He died four years ago after a Cardiac Arteries Operation. And Recently, My Doctor told me that I would not last for the next six months due to my cancer problem (cancer of the liver). Before my husband died, there is this sum $14.258,000 (Fourteen Million Two Hundred and Fifty Eight United State Dollars) that he deposited With USS Private Bank. Presently this money is still in the Bank custody. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to any good God fearing brother or sister that will utilize this fund the way I am going to instruct herein. I want somebody that will use this fund according to the desire of my late. husband to help Less privileged people, orphanages, widows and propagating the word of God. I also want part or this fund to be donated to any humanitarian Organization presently in Haiti. I took this decision because I would be going in for Surgery later today.I don&t have any child that will inherit this fund, And I don&t want this money used in an un Godly way.
