    I am in need of 1 million dollars to start a small farm and so I can have all my animals in one place. I can not afford to live in NJ anymore. I have found a small farm with 118 acres in Texas which I love. Land is lush and so much I can do to keep food growing for family so I would have very little need to buy at supermarket. Any amount of donation would be a big help. Thank you,

    Hi,

    I’m Gabriel Winge Kumo and I’m currently working as an avionics trainee with one of the airlines (airlines PNG) here in my country (Papua New Guinea). This is my fourth year contributing tirelessly towards the company and nation building in little ways but there is no recognition in what I have contributed so far and no body in the administrative level understands and look into my desires of attaining a recognised qualification and training in an aviation school so that I can become a good qualified aircraft maintenance engineer one day where I can contribute meaningfully and live a meaningful life.

    I have tried so many things but I have been halted by so many things that I couldn’t stretch my harms so far hope you know what I mean e.g.: due to harsh economic situations here in Papua New Guinea, corruption in Aviation administrations and other related factors such as pay or employment terms and condition

    To cut it short I just need someone to sponsor me to an aviation school so that I want to pursue a career in aviation especially in the field of avionics (aircraft maintenance ) so that I want to contribute meaningfully like most people do.

    For more information about me and situation affecting me please do not hesitate to enquire and your help will be greatly appreciated and honoured by me.

    Thank you

    Gabriel Winge KUMO

    I am FERNANDO TORRES REYES AND a public school principal in the Philippines. I am suffering from heavy debts. I am looking for someone who could help me and grant me a personal loan of USD 25,000.00 to consolidate/buy off my debts. I promise that I am going to pay such loan diligently for a period of 180 months. I just need to consolidate my loans so that my family would still live decently with whats left of my salary. I am not asking for dole-outs but I am asking you to trust me although I know that is very hard and almost impossible to do for most people.

    I incurred my debts due to sending my siblings to decent schools so they would have a brighter future than mine and become valuable assets for my country and the world. One of my 2 kids had already graduated with bachelor of Science in Nursing(already licensed) but is still gaining hospital experience through voluntary hospital work. The other one is graduating next year with the course bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

    My situation I know is just temporary but I need a helping hand to help me get through this. Please help me. If somebody could forward my mail to billionaires with surnames REYES I would be very grateful and I am very positive they won’t hesitate to help me.

    I have been deported frm the U.S for ten yrs now I been out there since I was 5yrs old that is what I know as my home. I felt like I was being dumped here in the middle of the jungle to die. I didn’t know anything about my place of birth. I felt lost n alone far away frm my home w no means of survival. I fell into depression for about 2yrs n then decided this is my home I have to make the best of it despite being treated like an outsider because of my proper English n not knowing how to speak the belizean language. I started looking for wrk n kept getting turned down because they prefer to hire somebody that was not deported. I then went out to the place called the tourist village to freelance and do hair braiding n nails for the tourist when they dock off the ship. I have come a long way many didn’t think I would make it I thought I wouldn’t make it for a while but I know I’m a survivor. I was put out by the officers n other grls because I wasn’t in a union last year the native grls refuses to let me join the union because of resentment that I wasn’t one of them. I have 5children 2 of whom I had to leave behind when I got deported. I’m between a rock n a hard place right now. My goal is to get certified in massage therapy n open a Spa. I pray that you will find it in UR hearts to open up n help my family n I my children hasn’t been to school in 1week and a 1day because they need school supplies shoes n arrears need to be paid for school my light got disconnected n I’m really affraid school will make a complaint plz help me with 50,000 dollars so I’ll never be in this situation again I can’t lose my family my children is all I have out here pls help me help myself all I need is a headstart It’ll be benificial to you also to know Belize is one of the tourist destination that you can contribute to there comfort in having a Spa that’s professional and donated by u the founder plz contact me u won’t be sorry.

    Hi,

    I’m Gabriel Winge Kumo and I’m currently working as an avionics trainee with one of the airlines (airlines PNG) here in my country (Papua New Guinea). This is my fourth year contributing tirelessly towards the company and nation building in little ways but there is no recognition in what I have contributed so far and no body in the administrative level understands and look into my desires of attaining a recognised qualification and training in an aviation school so that I can become a good qualified aircraft maintenance engineer one day where I can contribute meaningfully and live a meaningful life.

    I have tried so many things but I have been halted by so many things that I couldn’t stretch my harms so far hope you know what I mean e.g.: due to harsh economic situations here in Papua New Guinea, corruption in Aviation administrations and other related factors such as pay or employment terms and condition

    To cut it short I just need someone to sponsor me to an aviation school so that I want to pursue a career in aviation especially in the field of avionics (aircraft maintenance ) so that I want to contribute meaningfully like most people do.

    For more information about me and situation affecting me please do not hesitate to enquire and your help will be greatly appreciated and honoured by me.

    Thank you

I promise that I am going to pay such loan diligently for a period of 180 months. I just need to consolidate my loans so that my family would still live decently with whats left of my salary. I am not asking for dole-outs but I am asking you to trust me although I know that is very hard and almost impossible to do for most people.

    I incurred my debts due to sending my siblings to decent schools so they would have a brighter future than mine and become valuable assets for my country and the world. One of my 2 kids had already graduated with bachelor of Science in Nursing(already licensed) but is still gaining hospital experience through voluntary hospital work. The other one is graduating next year with the course bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

    My situation I know is just temporary but I need a helping hand to help me get through this. Please help me. If somebody could forward my mail to billionaires with surnames REYES I would be very grateful and I am very positive they won’t hesitate to help me.

    I have been deported frm the U.S for ten yrs now I been out there since I was 5yrs old that is what I know as my home. I felt like I was being dumped here in the middle of the jungle to die. I didn’t know anything about my place of birth. I felt lost n alone far away frm my home w no means of survival. I fell into depression for about 2yrs n then decided this is my home I have to make the best of it despite being treated like an outsider because of my proper English n not knowing how to speak the belizean language. I started looking for wrk n kept getting turned down because they prefer to hire somebody that was not deported. I then went out to the place called the tourist village to freelance and do hair braiding n nails for the tourist when they dock off the ship. I have come a long way many didn’t think I would make it I thought I wouldn’t make it for a while but I know I’m a survivor. I was put out by the officers n other grls because I wasn’t in a union last year the native grls refuses to let me join the union because of resentment that I wasn’t one of them. I have 5children 2 of whom I had to leave behind when I got deported. I’m between a rock n a hard place right now. My goal is to get certified in massage therapy n open a Spa. I pray that you will find it in UR hearts to open up n help my family n I my children hasn’t been to school in 1week and a 1day because they need school supplies shoes n arrears need to be paid for school my light got disconnected n I’m really affraid school will make a complaint plz help me with 50,000 dollars so I’ll never be in this situation again I can’t lose my family my children is all I have out here pls help me help myself all I need is a headstart It’ll be benificial to you also to know Belize is one of the tourist destination that you can contribute to there comfort in having a Spa that’s professional and donated by u the founder plz contact me u won’t be sorry. Thank u for your future generosity it’s highly appreciated.
