Dominican Republic 2016mac Humanitarian Project

The EUR 1 million project was funded by the Belgium Cooperation and implemented by FAO, in collaboration with national and local partners. A total of 16 communities participated in the project: six communities from the southern region of Dominican Republic, five from Jamaica and five from the south-east region of Haiti. In 2014, TI created a global initiative – the Humanitarian Aid Integrity Programme – to work with all humanitarian stakeholders to prevent corruption and ensure the integrity of humanitarian aid. To understand the problem, we have undertaken targeted research to build up an evidence base of the risks in the sector. Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington DC (March 15, 2011) – A U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) medical readiness and training exercise began in Santo, Dominican Republic, on March 6. At the request of the Government of the Dominican Republic, U.S. Army North Atlantic Regional Medical Command along with the Dominican Armed Forces Medical Team conducted. For more than 15 years, Project Medishare has provided services in the commune of Lahoye, a town in Haiti on the border with the Dominican Republic (DR). Project Medishare health agents have been busy registering deportees from the DR.

Why Batey?

After the privatization by the Dominican State of most of its sugar mills in the 1990s, over 1M people (mostly Haitian migrant cane cutters and their Dominican offspring) living in deep rural “batey” communities were left abandoned and with no clear future. BRA responded to the critical situation by approaching the President of the Republic (Hipólito Mejía), the Director of the State Sugar Council (Victor Manuel Baez) and the Minister of Public Health (Dr. Juan Octavio Ceballos) and present them our plan to install modern medical facilities within these highly impoverished and vulnerable enclaves. All three responded positively, which later led to the significant investment by BRA of more than $120M in social development programs within the bateyes from 1997-2017.


The logo of the Batey Relief Alliance (BRA) uniquely embodies several levels of meaning – four human-like beings representing: 1) the international community, 2) partners, 3) local governments, and 4) beneficiary populations holding hands that suggest cooperation, mutual respect and understanding, sharing and the reinforcement of individual efforts when joined together.

At the same time, the word batey, meaning in Taino Indian, the Community, creates the strongest spiritual value that a Community is everywhere, and that all of its members, regardless of race, gender, creed, religion, national origin or political affiliation, must endeavor to secure its stability, survival and future only by working together in harmony. Finally, the logo’s totality endows a joyful gesture that expresses accomplishment, liberation and spiritual uplift.
