Santo Domingo, October, 2017:
CitiHope Dominicana, through the social responsibility alliance Sanar una Nación (Heal a Nation) signed a cooperation agreement with the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) in order to promote and support the efforts of the Dominican Republic to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), including SDG 2 (Zero Hunger).
This strategic agreement, signed within the framework of the commemoration of World Food Day, establishes strategies and communication campaigns and nutrition education, strengthens national technical capacities in food security and nutrition issues, creates and generates evidence, collaborates with food and nutrition assistance programs, and expands response and food assistance capacities in emergencies and disasters.
Food security and nutrition are essential pillars of sustainable human development, because they allow people to not only to live in good health, but to also improve their income and livelihood. That is why alliances and public-private collaborations are essential, both in the analysis of the problem and in the approach and implementation of the solution.
Contributing to sustainable development is a challenge for all, as organizations, as people and as humanity.
