The Samuel Kanyon Doe Foundation has donated various food items to orphans in the ELWA community, in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.

The donation formed part of the foundation’s way of and also giving back to the community.

The items donated were bags of 25 kg rice and some none food items to the Rock of Divine Home near the SKD Sports Complex.

According to the foundation’s Board Member, Shelton K. Dowaity, the donations were the foundation’s way of identifying with the needs of the community, regardless of the residents’ religious affiliations and political ideologies, and in commemoration of the birth anniversary of the late Liberian president.

Mr. Dowaity and his entourage donated the items on behalf of the late President Doe’s daughter, Veronica Mamie Doe, chief executive officer of the foundation who resides in London, the United Kingdom.

Samuel K. Doe was born on May 6, 1950, in Tuzon, Grand Gedeh County. He was killed on September 9, 1990 in Monrovia at

the hands of a rebel faction belonging to Senator Prince Johnson.

I believe that if the former President were alive today, he would have done more of what we are doing here today,” said Mr. Dowaity, adding that the donation was just the beginning of what the foundation hopes to do in the near future in building the legacy of the late President.

Samuel Oshaka Jaidah, chairman of the Board of the foundation promised that the donations will be a gradual process to impact the lives of orphans and make them feel proud and a part of the society.

Michael F. Weh, who received the items on behalf of Mother Fartu K. Smith, CEO of the orphanage, appreciated the SKD Foundation for being the first ever to donate items to the orphans.


  1. Mr. Gray, just because you alleged that the late President Samuel K. Doe stole
    money so no one should give to the public. And in fact, what proof you got to
    say so? NOW, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf is still alive and leaving, are you
    prepared to question her of how much money she has taken from Liberia?
    You also have Charles Taylor still alive in jail in London, what effort are you
    making for him to return the money he hijacked from Liberia or only the Doe?

  2. It is about time that the Samuel Doe family return some of the Liberian people money the late president stole. In fact, the Doe family should do more to support group the like orphanage home because he (Samuel Doe) caused many of those children to be orphans. Doesn’t matter what form the money is returned, what is important is that the money should be returned.
