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 Michael Steeven Morales Xon. I was born on March 8, 2014 and I am five years old. I am a basically healthy child. I have two sisters who also attend the feeding program. My family owns the house in which we live. It has four medium-size rooms. The house is made of cement block with a tin roof and cement floor. We have water and electricity. My father’s name is Jose and my mother’s name is Tomasa. They have a dining room in San Martin of Zone 6, and they work there together in order to provide for our family. I am in kindergarten and when I am not in school, I spend my time playing with my toy cars, tazos and spinning tops. I also like to color and to run. My favorite colors are yellow and blue and my favorite animal is the cat. The food that I like best is fried chicken. My family attends a Christian church.
With much love and many blessings,
Michael Steeven Morales Xon
