One Heart is thrilled to welcome Carrie-Anne Moss as the Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Grateful Heart Gala. Moss is a Canadian actress, most known for her role as “Trinity” in The Matrix Trilogy. She boasts many impressive acting credits, including starring in the Oscar-nominated Chocolat and earning an Independent Spirit Award for her performance opposite Guy Pearce in Memento.Most recently, Carrie-Anne starred in Paul W.S. Anderson’s Pompeii, out earlier this year. Married to Steven Roy, the couple has two sons and one daughter together.
One Heart's life-saving programs were initially established in the late 1990’s in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. Over the last decade, they have been able to decrease unattended home births from 85% to 20%, mostly by ensuring the presence of a skilled attendant at delivery. Based on their experience, One Heart developed an effective, replicable, and sustainable model to reduce preventable deaths related to pregnancy and delivery among vulnerable rural populations. They work with local communities and local health providers to develop a culturally appropriate Network of Safety around mothers and infants. Through teaching good practices and distributing essential supplies, One Heart ensures that mothers survive delivery and their infants enjoy the first months of life.
