Zona 5, where your child lives, is located in a slum area of Guatemala City. An extremely poor area, our program is squeezed in among the shanty dwellings built over an old city dump. Many houses in this area are without toilets or running water and are assembled with scrap wood, sheet metal, and cardboard. Zone 5 is considered one of the most dangerous areas of Guatemala City. It is controlled by gangs and drug pushers. Robberies and murders are common in this area. Public education is available - however, many cannot afford it. Life in Zone 5 is very difficult.
Hello! My name is Ruth Isamar Romero Rodriguez. I was born on February 3, 2015 and I am four years old. I am in good health and I attend the Zone 5 feeding program. I live with my mother and my stepfather. My stepfather’s name is Jim Dominique Godinez Perez, but I consider him as my father. He works as a security. My mother’s name is Olga Isabel Romero Rodriguez and she is a housewife. We are all very happy right now because my mother is expecting a baby. We live in a house that has two rooms and a separate kitchen. The house is made of cement block with a tin roof and a ceramic tile floor. I have only one sister. I am in kindergarten this year, and when I am not in school, I enjoy coloring, playing ball and playing with my stuffed animals. My favorite color is yellow, and my favorite animal is the tiger. The foods that I like to eat the most are chicken and french fries. Currently, my family does not attend church.
With much love and many blessings,
Ruth Isamar Romero Rodriguez
