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 Yasmin De los Angeles Valiente Perez. I was born on April 14, 2013 and I am six years old. I am in good health and I attend the Zone 5 feeding program. My father’s name is Pablo Daniel Valiente Jimenez and he is a coordinator assistant in a local business. My mother’s name is Angelica and she sells beauty products from catalogs. We own the room in which we live. It is made of adobe with a tin roof and a granite floor. Our kitchen is in this same room. We have running water and electricity. I have only one brother. I am in kindergarten this year, and when I am not in school, I enjoy playing with my toy dishes, coloring or watching television. My favorite color is pink, and my favorite animals are dogs and cats. I like to eat all types of food that are made with sauces. My family attends an evangelical church.
With much love and many blessings,
Yasmin De los Angeles Valiente Perez
