PSI Global Ambassador
Amanda Leigh “Mandy” Moore is an American singer-songwriter, actress and humanitarian. Moore joined PSI in 2008 as an Ambassador for its child survival programs, which provides children and their families with the education, products, services and care needed to improve their health and save lives in more than 30 countries around the world.
On her first trip with PSI, Mandy helped launch a mass distribution of 3 million insecticide-treated mosquito nets to children suffering from malaria in South Sudan. The initiative, which was undertaken in partnership with the Southern Sudanese Ministry of Health and with funding from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria ensured that pregnant women and newborn babies are protected from the deadly disease.
In 2010 and 2011, Mandy helped raise more than $2.2 million through the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to support nationwide net distributions in the Central African Republic and Cameroon. She visited both countries to launch the distribution and joined a bipartisan group of U.S. congressional staffers in Cameroon to learn how partnership plays a critical role in covering an entire country with long-lasting insecticide-treated mosquito nets.
Mandy has attended Clinton Global Initiative University and became a Young Global Shaper for the World Economic Forum.
