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 Estrella Lisset Carrera Aguilar. I was born on April 25, 2010 and I am nine years old. When I was born, I suffered from bronchitis and pneumonia and had to be treated in the hospital. Thanks to God, I am healthy now. I have one brother who also attends the feeding program. We rent a house that has three rooms and we use one of these as a kitchen. The house is made of cement blocks with a tin roof and a granite floor. My father’s name is Byron and he is a school bus driver. My mother’s name is Antonia and she sells catalogue products. I am in 3rd grade. My favorite color is pink and my favorite animal is the rabbit. The food that I like best is black beans and rice. In my free time, I like to race, jump and to play hide-and-seek. My family attends a Christian church.
With much love and many blessings,
Estrella Lisset Carrera Aguilar
