Zone 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. This child lives on top of an old rubbish dump in Zone 5 of Guatemala City.
Hello, my name is Josue David Chan Castillo. I was born on January 11, 2013 and I am six years old. I am a healthy child. I have two sisters and one of them also attends the feeding program. My father’s name is Jaime and is a baker. My mother’s name is Irlanda and she does the cleaning in a dining room. We rent a two -room house with a separate kitchen. The house is made of cement blocks with a granite floor. The roof is constructed in such a way that an additional level can be added in the future. We have water and electricity. My sister and I share a bed. I am in kindergarten. My favorite color is orange and my favorite animal is the elephant. The food that I like best is noodles. In my free time, I like to play with my ball and other toys, and to watch television. My favorite program is “Vampirina”. My family attends Ebenezer Church.
With much love and many blessings,
Josue David Chan Castillo
