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 Jaquelin Andrea Morales Chan. I was born on May 29, 2014 and I am five years old. I am a healthy child. I have two brothers and one of them also attends the feeding program. My father’s name is Luis and he works as a gardener. My mother’s name is Lourdes and she takes care of my siblings and me. We rent one room and a separate kitchen. The room is made of wood planks with a tin roof and a cement floor. We have our own water, but we get our electricity from my father’s brother. I am in kindergarten. My favorite color is pink and my favorite animal is the monkey. The food that I like best is black beans. When I am not in school, I spend my time playing with my dolls and stuffed animals. Currently, my family does not attend church.
With much love and many blessings,
Jaquelin Andrea Morales Chan
