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 Winslet Nohemi Arias Ramirez. I was born on January 28, 2012 and I am seven years old. I am sometimes suffer from colds and sore throats, but I am basically a healthy child. I have one brother and one sister who also attend the feeding program. My family owns the house in which we live. It is one room with walls and roof made of tin sheet metal and a cement floor. We have our stove in this same room. My stepfather’s name is Wilie and he works as a farmer. My mother’s name is Delfina and she sweeps the stalls in the market. We are a very united family. i am in 1st grade. My favorite color is purple and my favorite animal is the dog. The food that I like best is chicken. In my free time, I like to play dolls, toy dishes and tag.
With much love and many blessings,
