Multi-Awarded Filmmaker and Writer, Maurice Dwayne Smith Vows Ongoing Support for We Care for Humanity

We Care for Humanity expresses its appreciation to Maurice Dwayne Smith, Man of the Year 2023,  for his continuous backing of the organization. Maurice serves as WCH Publicity Ambassador and a regular contributor to the cause.

“We are truly grateful to have Maurice by our side for an extended period. His exceptional talent and charisma greatly enhance our mission and objectives. We are equally delighted by his numerous achievements and accolades, which bring pride to WCH,” stated Queen Maria Amor, the founder of We Care for Humanity.

About Maurice Dwayne Smith:

Maurice Dwayne Smith, was born in Paris, France, the youngest of two Army brats, to Master Sergeant Ruben and Nancy Smith, while his dad was on tour and his mom worked as a teacher in an Army school. His sister Shevawn and him flourished within the French majestic lifestyle, learning to play piano like little virtuosos and his parents enjoyed the night life, which the Eiffel Tower luxuriously witnessed before them. The Army base named S.H.A.P.E , which housed thousands of Army families, was adorned with flags, had a football field and contained working quarters and apartments for its denizens--The Smiths lived idyllically, and resiliently off base, amidst Italians, British,French and many other nationalities.

Hailing from his parents Southern sharecropper, and store owner lineages', his family enjoyed a fairly racist vacant existence, as the racism gutting the South was a thorn, which hadn't the elasticity to stretch across the ocean to annihilate or terrorize them ------Maurice was ignorant to that evil!

Meanwhile a war was raging in Vietnam. Inside France its President Charles DeGaul fell out of love with America and sent its ambassadors and military back home. Settling in Charleston, South Carolina, which Maurice grew to vehemently dislike, his mom's hometown, he and Shevawn began their American upbringing. Notwithstanding his Dad's deployment to Vietnam, the advent of racism sticking its ugly head into their lives, and being separated from Dad, the family acquired new friends--but Maurice pined for his British friends the Huggins, especially Briggit----and life progressed sluggishly, riding upon the back of a Catholicism vibe from elementary through high school.

Like most little boys Maurice dreamed of playing sports, as his piano playing days died upon arrival in america, he dabbled in all facets of athleticism but the only thing that securely fastened upon him and which he was destined to pursue professionally was journalism, and he majored in it when he entered college at The University of South Carolina.

Four years of school went by, filled with hard work but unfortunately harder partying, he dropped out--NOT FLUNKED OUT--and joined the Army, which he figured would allow him to pursue his dad's footsteps.

After joining the military, he unfortunately became injured, left honorably and settled into The Big Apple and was determined to make it, die and eat the maggot in that crazy Big Apple if necessary, as he was simply not going to be enslaved to the Charlestonian "web of terror anymore"----there always seemed to be employment for everyone else there but him.

Interestingly enough, he got married, moved back to Charleston, and fathered two little girls and divorced all in the span of years upon resurfacing back in the South!

Strangely enough, he encountered problems even bigger than unemployment so he was urgently, and miraculously forced to hitchhike out of the South, landing in Los Angeles CA, where his old vibe of "eating that maggot" resurfaced. He finally felt that he had found himself a home!

Upon landing in tinseltown, he forged a relationship with the love of his life--not his ex wife--who was a liaison to many life changing jobs, such as AT&T, which payed for the completion of his Bachelors of Science Bus Admin in Management degree at The University of Redlands Redlands, CA. His infatuation with the entertainment field led him into acting where he eventually earned his Sag-Aftra card and got an online tv show in Hollywood, CA.

In conclusion, one eventful night Maurice met Maria Amor, a former Miss Philippines, who eventually became a Princess, and Queen and CEO of the nonprofit We Care for Humanity. They became friends and eventually forged a working relationship where Maurice became her media guy and now Ambassador, and Publicity Director for WCH.

Accompanied by HRH Queen Mariam Leonor Torres Mastura, founder of We Care for Humanity (WCH), they will attend the Peace and Cooperation Conference hosted by the Sultanate of Magindanaw.

Since the enthronement of the new Sultan of Magindanaw, His Majesty Sultan Abdulaziz Zulkarnain Mastura Kudarat VI, on the 14th of January this year, he and his Cabinet members have been actively promoting peace within the community.

Both the 26th Sultan of Magindanaw and Crown Prince, His Hghness Datu Mamuar Mastura expressed their honor in hosting an emissary from the United Nations. They have high hopes that this visit will positively impact the longstanding issues faced by the people in Mindanao.

The conference, which will include the "Kanduli" thanksgiving ceremony of the Sultan and the launch of the upcoming WCH Royal Summit, Philippines 2024, is scheduled for the 9th of March from 10AM to 3PM at the Royal House of Her Highness Royal Princess Febraida Mastura Matalam in Cotabato.

Sharief shared his emotions on his upcoming visit to the Philippines, stating, "I am excited to return to the Philippines for the second time and particularly eager to explore the captivating region of Magindanaw. Magindanaw holds significant importance in the hearts of many in the Arab and Islamic world as the land of Muslim Philippines. As a fellow Muslim, I feel a strong sense of solidarity with my brethren in Magindanaw and their quest for cultural and economic advancement. As I journey to the realm of Sultan Abdulaziz Zulkarnain, I sense a profound familiarity, as though I already know him despite our yet-to-be-made acquaintance. I anticipate that this visit will deepen our mutual understanding and strengthen our bonds as we collaborate towards shared objectives in economics and human development. Undoubtedly, my time in Magindanaw will be enlightening. I am keen to immerse myself in the rich cultural heritage and witness firsthand the economic strides the region has achieved. Moreover, I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to share our media and development expertise with the African and Arab world, leveraging our established partnerships with international organizations in Europe like UNIDO and the Atomic Energy Organization. The Philippines, with its diverse landscape and vibrant culture, offers abundant prospects for cooperation and progress. Magindanaw, in particular, serves as a testament to the resilience and determination of its people. Together, we can pave the way for a brighter future that celebrates cultural diversity and fosters economic prosperity for all. I am profoundly grateful for the chance to revisit Magindanaw and anticipate the meaningful connections and fruitful collaborations that await."

From the book We Care for Humanity II available via Amazon.com

 

5th G. O. D. Awards 2017

 

All the world resounds with change,

So many new alliances exchange.

Uncertainty, discontent, ragged drowned refugees,

From devastation, widespread war the innocent flees.

 

Nowhere on Earth seems to be immune.

Inequality dances to the Devil’s tune.

United our nations must stand for right.

We see the problems, we need to fight.

 

Hunger, poverty, pestilence and disease,

Education for change, the humanitarian sees,

Ideas to help and protect mankind,

Dreams for a better future we hope to find.

 

Our Awardees have so much good to share,

Their humanitarian ideals and lifelong care.

G. O. D. awardees work for mankind

Here the greatest of the great we find.

 

As diverse as our countries stand,

Humanitarian love they understand.

Members of a very select G. O. D. band.
