Why, Why, Why, Delilah?

Now, lets see ....

OMG, a pensioner who had no family has left a large amount of her life savings to ….wait for it….Centrelink. Ms Delilah Moussa, a Lebanese born pensioner who died in 2007, was a regular visitor to the Campbelltown branch where she often came in to have a chat with staff and discuss her welfare payments. The $60,000 has been put to good use with the branch using the money to set up a program to assist elderly people who are isolated in their homes to have more access to social outings and support. The Campbelltown Centrelink have also put up a plaque in dedication to her generosity.

  1. Darn, I should have known her

  2. I think thats awesome of her in a way. Welfare is always getting such a bashing, but there are still people that its vital for, and I have always been pleased our country has this social system, even if it is kind of in a shambles, i think its incredibly generous of her, and shows her gratitude

    i think her intentions were sweet and she probably meant it to be directly for the people who work there and Centrelink have enforced their policy that workers cant take gifts or anything from customers (cause theyll prob poison them with cupcakes or something). At least they are setting up a program to assist the elderly which is good.

      Sometimes I wonder about you Susi. Cupcakes and poison, you’re probably right though., What a sweet gesture. Since I’ve been a carer they send me a letter every month asking me how I’m doing and if my bank balance is going up NOT !!. I have never had a problem with them in fact I think if you don’t have debt it’s ok. That’s not to say I’d mention them in my will but maybe this is the only kind word this lady ever heard and old people, even Mr Don Mills can be very likable. He does look very “CUDDLEABLE” lol new word m don’t you think?
