The Bangladeshi housemaid that won the lottery, has, in fact, received his money. So it was for real after all! There is hope ladies and gentlemen! There is hope.

A Bangladeshi domestic helper who scooped the biggest ever jackpot on the Jordanian Charitable Lottery broke down in tears yesterday when he was presented with his JD250,000 cheque. "I am so happy to win the lottery, it’s a great feeling. I always dreamt of being rich and now I finally am." Abdul Malek told The Jordan Times.

Mohammed Abdul Malek Sekdar, 46, was presented with the cheque by General Federation for Charitable Organisations Fund Secretary General Ahmad Eses during a ceremony at the organisation’s headquarters. Eses said the win has made Abdul Malek a millionaire in his native Bangladesh.

Abdul Malek said he intends to donate some of the money to charitable societies and orphanages in thekKingdom. "This is something dear to my heart," he added.
