Since 1990, CitiHope has procured, shipped, and distributed over $1 billion in medicine, medical supplies, nutritional and developmental resources worldwide.

Our work begins with a cup of warm soup, or a delivery of basic antibiotics, and becomes a foundation to restore dignity and hope.  Our priority is to get the right medicine, to the right patient, in the right dosage, at the right time, for maximum impact in the lives of individuals and communities.

The Chernobyl Accident

A 1989 New York Times report on the Chernobyl accident prompted CitiHope’s President Paul Moore to visit the former Soviet Union with his son Paul Moore II and friend Michael Christensen. Their trip brought them face-to-face with the catastrophic health care crisis in Belarus caused by exposure to radioactive contaminants.

Visiting Minsk Oncology Center and seeing children with advanced stages of leukemia, Hodgkin’s disease and thyroid lymphomas, with little or no medicine for treatment, led CitiHope to dedicate itself to saving the lives of children in Belarus.
