FACE Africa will hold its second annual Clean Water Benefit Gala in Boston later this month, honoring Marcus Samuelsson and featuring special guests Dikembe Mutombo and Whitney Port.

FACE Africa “connects and collaborates with individuals and organizations doing life-changing work around the world to raise awareness and help transform impoverished communities in Liberia and Sierra Leone. Their goal is to rebuild and improve communities that were impacted during years of civil unrest in Liberia and Sierra Leone by providing access to clean water and sanitation, education and training, health and nutritional programs, and empowering women and girls.”

Award winning chef and author Marcus Samuelsson has been a UNICEF Ambassador since 2000, and is highly supportive of the organization’s immunization programs. He has created menus for UNICEF’s annual Snowflake Gala, and spearheaded the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF partnership with Gourmet magazine.

Dikembe Mutombo is the founder of the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation – which focuses on the health, education and quality of life for the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo – and is an NBA Global Ambassador.

Last year, Whitney Port visited Liberia, West Africa, with the FACE Africa to learn about the country and raise awareness of the issues and challenges facing the country.

The event takes place at The Taj Boston, 15 Arlington Street, Boston on March 26. More information can be found here.
