PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI (AP) - Actress Maria Bello says she has been invited to join a Haiti advisory panel that is to help develop the quake-damaged country’s economy.
The star of NBC’s new crime drama “Prime Suspect” will join a board of 30-plus leaders, executives and philanthropists. They include an adviser to Haitian President Michel Martelly, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohammad Yunus.
Bello plans to focus on projects that help women and girls in Haiti as the country tries to recover from last year’s earthquake. She has worked in Haiti the past three years with various aid groups, most of which concern women and health issues.
The announcement was made Tuesday.
