The Dominican Republic is one of the best places to see CitiHope in action.

A grassroots effort to provide hurricane relief in 2000 has grown to a national health network supply chain, largely supported by Dominican businesses. While this process happened organically, it would not have happened without the dedicated efforts of CitiHope Caribbean director, Tim Tuccelli, and his family. Their inventive new initiatives and dedicated work birthed a strategic alliance: a private-public partnership between Sanar Una Nacion (Spanish for “Heal A Nation”) and Dominican businesses highlighting social responsibility.
