2 EL CORAZon de AMERICA One of the only two landlocked countries in South America, Paraguay is positioned on both banks of the River Paraguay, bordering Argentina, Brazil and Bolivia. Due to its central location in South America it is sometimes called, el corazón de América Heart of America. It covers an area of around 400,000 square miles.

The following is what she will buy with any money that is raised: //Medicines for fevers //Painkillers //Basic Antibiotics These are practical responses to genuine needs. Poor nutrition lessens people s physical resistance to illness. Prompt treatment can significantly impact people s lives for the better. The word chaco in Spanish comes from the Quechua word chaqu meaning hunting land. It refers to a sparsely-populated lowland region of the Río de la Plata basin, and covers over half the total area of Paraguay. It is one of South America s last agricultural frontiers, with a semi-arid climate. The Chaco lacks all basic infrastructure and modern amenities. The vast majority of people living there belong to indigenous groups living at subsistence level based on cattle farming. //three eight\\
