Day 13- el 7 de julio

Life in Santa Ana is so different from what we’re used to seeing in the U.S. or even Isla Pucu. Here the people are impoverished, yes, but when you’re around the people talking with them or working with them they don’t seem like they’re poor or in need of basic supplies. But when you look around you and see all the trash in the streets, or the wild animals, you think “!Wow! these people really need help.” But they still find it in their hearts to give what they have to the people in the community who have even less. The people of Santa Ana have a very strong sense of community and pride. However, it’s the lack of basic needs that keep the community of Santa Ana looked at as one of the “places you don’t go” when you go to Asuncion.
