New York, NY: March 7, 2022  In light of the current crisis, Rebecca Foerster, President of ALROSA U.S.A., has agreed with the Diamonds Do Good board to resign as President and board member of Diamonds Do Good (DDG) effective immediately. The Board of Directors thanks Rebecca for her commitment to the organization and its beneficiaries, and for always putting its mission first.

Immediate Past President Anna Martin will fulfill the role of President. “I look forward to continuing the good work of Diamonds Do Good which has never been more important than it is today,” said Martin.

Diamonds Do Good, formerly known as the Diamond Empowerment Fund, is a not-for-profit organization inspired in 2006 by Nelson Mandela to tell the world about the positive impact of diamonds in Southern Africa. Its focus today is to create meaningful change in natural diamond communities across the world and to tell these meaningful stories.
