About Dominica ...
Chalice Sponsor Site of Dominica, Paraguay
Asuncion is one of the oldest cities in South America and the capital of Paraguay. In 1588, Jesuit Missionaries established settlements on the Paraná River. It is Paraguay’s industrial and cultural center and has an estimated population of 680,250. Asuncion is the main distribution centre for cotton, sugarcane, maize, tobacco, fruit, and cattle products grown in the nearby rich agricultural and pastoral hinterland, which are processed in and around the capital. Numerous factories make textiles, vegetable oils, footwear, flour, small river craft, and tobacco products. The Remanso Bridge connects Asunción with neighbouring Argentina.
The Chalice Dominica Sponsor Site began its activities in 2004 with the goal of assisting children living in extreme poverty in Paraguay. The Site is administered by the Dominican Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament in Luque and Villarica, Paraguay. This Site oversees five locations and sponsors both children and seniors. The children who are in the sponsorship program are extremely poor; many from single parent families. Others have both parents living, but their families are very large and their parents are too poor to properly care for them. This Site has improved the quality of life of many people by offering spiritual support, health and education assistance, and nutrition. In addition, this Site offers various workshops for adults such as baking, manufacturing of cleaning articles, embossed leather, clothing, and embroidered garments.
