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 Carlos Emanuel Gomez Chiche. I was born on December 26, 2014 and I am four years old. I am a healthy child. I have two sisters who also attend the feeding program. My father’s name is Carlos and my mother’s name is Margarita. They work in a cleaning business. We live in my grandmother’s house. We have two rooms made of cement block with a tin roof and a smooth concrete floor. We have water and electricity. My sisters and I sleep in one room in a bunk bed. I sleep on the bottom bunk and they are on the top. My parents sleep in the other room and we also cook in that room. I am not in school yet, so I spend my time playing with my balls and toy cars. My favorite color is green and my favorite animal is the elephant. The food that I like best is chicken. Currently, my family does not attend church.
With much love and many blessings,
Carlos Emanuel Gomez Chiche
