About the Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, making it one of only two islands in the Caribbean occupied by two countries. Like its nearest neighbor, it is subject to destructive storms throughout the summer and early fall.
- One-third of Dominican children never complete their elementary school education.
- About 42 percent of Dominicans are considered poor, and 16 percent of those live in extreme poverty.
- Ravaged by several recent hurricanes, the damage is severely hurting the country's many poor families.
