Mandy Moore, the voice of Rapunzel in the Oscar-nominated Disney film “Tangled,” lends her voice to another animated film project. As Ambassador for the global health organization Population Services International (PSI), Moore narrates a video in which she tells the story of a mother and her daughter on the road to better health.
Along the way they find the many places in their community where PSI delivers a dignified approach to preventing malaria and HIV/AIDS, offers family planning for women and couples, and addresses the top killers of kids in the developing world.[ Also Read: Mandy Moore Says Be the Change, Save a Life ]
“PSI is the best kept secret in global health and development,” said Moore. “For more than 40 years, PSI has provided millions of families with the information, products and services they need to address their individual health needs. With this video, I am proud to share PSI’s story with the world – and encourage others to learn about how health programs are transforming lives and creating opportunities.”
PSI operates health programs in 67 countries. As a non-profit organization, PSI works in partnership with local governments, ministries of health, and local organizations to implement cost effective, long-lasting solutions.[ Also Read: Anime Series OZMA to be Released on Viki ]
Moore began serving as an Ambassador for PSI in 2009, following a trip to South Sudan where she saw PSI’s malaria prevention programs in action. Since then, she has traveled to the Central African Republic, Cameroon, and Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to galvanize financial and political support for health programs.
