In his country, "Ruin" of letters and addresses of all officials, leaving only the President, to whom it does not go. But I think it is useless. And walk in all instances and stud on their doorstep with an outstretched hand has no power, . or health. For God's sake, . help find electronic and postal addresses Charitable Foundation Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in Seattle, . and Warren Buffett, the founder of investment and insurance company Berkshire,
    . I really need their help, in their country, I care not found. They help to developing countries by millions of dollars, and I need to, but then nothing at all;. God willing, we might hear one of them my request. Last year I tried to appeal to Sergei Sudevu in Moldova. He received an inheritance from a relative in Germany, but on the phone he told me that probate takes time and that I had no illusions. And if you know and give another address other rich people, who to contact for financial assistance for the rest of life due to intuition tells me that someone would I still be able to help. Pre grateful Arzgul Gafarovna Tillyabaeva. My email address is: A. Tillyabaeva @ mail.ru How do you do! Enormous request! Help someone! All of its 50 years only and made, that it worked on the wear. But now from the endlessness I do not know to coma to still turn for help. In its country it "covered" with letters and rotation of all officials, remained only the President, it was not turned to whom. But also this I think uselessly. Yes even to walk on all instances and to cover their thresholds with the lengthened hand already there is neither forces nor health. For entire saint, help to find the electronic and post addresses of the charitable foundation for Bill and Melinda Gates in Seattle, and Warren the [Baffeta] - founder of the investment-insurance company Of berkshire. Their aid is very necessary to me, in my country I did not find aid. They help developing countries by millions of dollars, and to me is necessary that entire nothing. God will give, someone of them can and will hear my request. In the past year I attempted to turn to Sergey [Sudev] into Moldavia. It obtained inheritance from its relative in Germany, but on the telephone it answered me, that the formulation of inheritance occupies much time and so that I would not feed the illusions. But if you know and will give the addresses of other still rich, to coma it is possible to turn for material help, entire remainder of life would thank intuition to me it prompts that someone nevertheless will be able to help me. Is previously grateful, [Arzgul] Of [gafarovna] Of [tillyabaeva]. My electronic address: A. Tillyabaeva @ mail.ru
