Women dominco-haitians movement (MUDHA) is a non-profit organization. Its offices are located in the capital, Santo Domingo, and Leogane, Republic of Haiti.
It was founded in 1983 by Solian Pie and a group of Dominican women of Haitian descent.
Its mission is to improve the living conditions of dominican with Haitian descent vulnerable communities, especially for women and children, while implementing human development programs including health programs, legal assistance, and human rights advocacy campaigns.
Its mission is to fight for the defense of human rights by promoting community empowerment in the “bateyes” (communities within the sugarcane plantations), where people living currently face geographical isolation, poverty and discrimination.
Also, around 200.000 dominicans of Haitian descent face statelessness. The Dominican Republic has stripped several generations of citizenship after decades of discriminatory practices codified into laws that have turned Haitians and their Dominican Republic-born children into “ghost citizens”. These stateless people lack identity papers for work, healthcare, schooling or the right to live in either nation on the island.
