Citihope International

Summary

CitiHope International was founded in 1985 as CitiHope Radio Ministry, providing connections between urban ministries and donors to serve the homeless community in New York City. Following a visit to Minsk, Belarus, by founder and president Rev. Paul Moore in 1990, CitiHope began connecting Belarusian hospitals, overwhelmed by the aftereffects of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and the collapse of the Soviet Union, with pharmaceutical companies who donated life-saving cancer medications.

In the years that followed, CitiHope changed its focus internationally and became CitiHope International. From its beginnings in the former Soviet Union, CitiHope has expanded to serve over 30 countries on 5 continents with medical and food relief, and health education for patients, physicians, and communities.

This organization is non-profit. Contributions to it are fully deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Purpose

CitiHope International seeks to put a healthy life within reach of everyone by promoting health, preventing disease, and providing cure to underserved populations worldwide.

CitiHope seeks to obtain the maximum strategic medical resources, at the minimum cost, in the shortest period of time, to give health and hope to the greatest number of people possible.

Prior to each medical shipment, an advance needs assessment is carried out by trained professional medical staff. Each hospital and/or clinic targeted for medical relief is visited prior to delivery of any pharmaceuticals. Any medicines consigned to an institution are committed to a specific head doctor in a particular department, with the professional knowledge of the medicine's efficacy and use. All medicines delivered comply with national and World Health Organization standards, and deliveries of medicine are accompanied by education and training for patients and healthcare providers on appropriate use of the medicine and management of care. Careful monitoring, evaluation, and reporting of every program is conducted by CitiHope or its partners in each country.


Mission statement

CitiHope International uses the following to express its mission:

As quoted from John Wesley, the 18th century Methodist Reformer's compassionate ministry motto: Raise all you can, Save all you can and Give all you can.

History

CitiHope International was founded in 1985 by the Reverend Paul and Sharon Moore for the purpose of providing Christian humanitarian relief to needy people groups in the United States and the New Independent States in the former Soviet Union. Over time, CitiHope's work expanded to reach over 30 countries on five continents. With its corporate headquarters in Andes, New York, CitiHope International is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit Private Volunteer Organization (PVO) which operates on principles of compassion, generosity, stewardship, accountability and integrity, as taught by the Scriptures.

Since October 1990, CitiHope has procured, shipped and delivered over $800 million in medicine, medical supplies, nutritional and developmental resources worldwide. Throughout that time, CitiHope has established Regional Offices in Belarus, Dominican Republic, Kyrgyzstan, and Malawi, and developed strategic partnerships with local governments, businesses, and NGOs in each country where we work.

CitiHope International has followed a humanitarian relief strategy focusing resources on a few major world areas to make a significant difference in the lives of the most vulnerable. CitiHope accesses a variety of donated medicines, medical supplies, food products, and other relief items, which in turn are dedicated to meeting the greatest human needs identified by our partners in each country.


Program accomplishments

Since 1990, CitiHope has served over 30 countries worldwide with over $800 million worth of medicine, medical supplies, nutritional and developmental humanitarian assistance. Through strategic alliances established with U.S. government agencies, Ministries of Health in each country, private-sector businesses, and local NGOs, CitiHope is able to deliver the right assistance to the right person at the right time, and to deliver over $20 of assistance for every dollar donated.

CitiHope's flexible, needs-based service delivery model, coordinated through local governments, businesses, and NGOs in each country, has enabled CHI to respond to humanitarian crises including the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, earthquakes in Haiti and India, hurricanes in Dominican Republic and in the United States, drought and famine in the Horn of Africa, and political turmoil and ethnic violence in Kyrgyzstan.

CitiHope also develops long-term capacity-building partnerships with targeted hospitals and institutions for sustained impact in program countries. Long-term partnerships and projects have included primary healthcare reform and pharmaceutical management training in Kyrgyzstan, resupply medical deliveries to hospitals in Belarus through the U.S. Department of State's Operation Provide Hope program, and HIV/AIDS education in Malawi conducted in partnership with local churches.

Private sector businesses have become increasingly vital partners for CitiHope in recent years. Since 2009, in partnership with The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation, local Coca-Cola business units and bottlers, local governments, NGOs, and medical institutions, CitiHope has delivered $51 million in medicines and medical supplies to 7 African nations, reaching over 202,000 persons with life-saving treatment. In 2010, CitiHope and Fundacion Rica, the philanthropic arm of Grupo Rica, the Dominican Republic's largest dairy and juice producer, launched a nation-wide health initiative entitled Sanar Una Nacion (Heal A Nation). Since its inception, Sanar Una Nacion has served over 200 local organizations and institutions (including hospitals, schools, orphanages, and clinics) across the Dominican Republic, reaching over 411,000 people with medical and nutritional support valued at over $83 million. The Sanar Una Nacion initiative engages all levels of society, from the Dominican Ministry of Health to local businesses (Pages BBDO, Grupo Ramos, and Banco Popular Dominicana have since joined the partnership) to Dominican and U.S. military leaders, to local and international NGOs and community-based groups across the island.
