“We say thank you to our son, Prince for remembering us during these hard times in Liberia,” Mr. Massaquoi said on behalf of the elders.
“For him to be all the way over there [in the United State of America] and think about us, the old people here [in Liberia]. We say thank you so much—let God bless him double in Jesus’ name.”
Owned by Mr. and Mrs. Prince Woods, former residents of the area now based in the United States of America, the Prince and Tawa Foundation seeks to help the underprivileged live a healthy and productive lives in local communities across Liberia.

He said the Foundation is currently contemplating on the distribution of food and non-food items across local communities within the country with focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty.
