A Brief Look at the Dominican Republic

Situated in the Caribbean Sea, the Dominican Republic is a Central American country that has actively engaged in addressing children's rights at the international level. It has demonstrated its commitment by signing and ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. However, significant child-related concerns remain.

More than 1 million children in the Dominican Republic live in poverty

Biggest needs

Food: sometimes they go days without eating because their families live from day to day and sometimes cannot buy enough.

Health: children live in rural areas where going to a doctor's office is a huge expense, so their families resort to home remedies to treat symptoms that often worsen because they are not treated properly.

Education: due to poverty, parents prioritize providing food over addressing educational concerns for the children in the program. High prices of school supplies prompt families to rely on Good Neighbors' annual deliveries.

Drinking water: Many of these children do not have access to water suitable for human consumption and sanitation.
