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 Emily Fernanda Iveth Mazariegos Hernandez. I was born on June 3, 2014 and I am five years old. I am a healthy child. I have two brothers who also attend the feeding program. My father’s name is Fernando and my mother’s name is Nora. They both work as waiters. We own the house in which we live. We have three rooms. I sleep in my own bed in the room with my parents. My brothers sleep in the other room. The house is made of cement block with a cement floor. The roof is constructed so that an additional level could be added in the future. I am in kindergarten and when I am not in school, I like to play with my dolls and my stuffed animals. My favorite color is pink and my favorite animal is the rabbit. The food that I like best is pizza. My family attends Restoration Church.
With much love and many blessings,
Emily Fernanda Mazariegos Hernandez
