In economic terms the Dominican Republic is defined as a middle-income country, but this definition can make it hard for an organisation like Christian Aid to explain why we work there. In fact, 72% of the world’s poor now live in middle-income countries, which is precisely why Christian Aid’s work in Dominican Republic is vital to our vision of bringing about a world free from poverty. #caribbean #inequality #poverty
