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 Kristel Belen Sazo Luch. I was born on July 11, 2015 and I am four years old. I am a basically healthy child. I have two brothers and three sisters. We own the house in which we live. It has two rooms and a small yard. We use one room as a kitchen. The rooms are made of cement block with a tin roof and a cement floor. We have water and electricity. My father’s name is Hugo and he is a taxi driver. My mother’s name is Alicia and she does the cleaning in an office building. I am not in school yet, so I spend my time playing with my dolls and toy dishes or watching television. My favorite color is pink and my favorite animal is the cat. The food that I like best is black beans. My family attends a church called “House of God”.
With much love and many blessings,
Kristel Belen Sazo Luch
