Zona 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 Libni Gissel Lima Quehe. I attend the Zone 5 feeding program. I was born on July 16th, 2014 and I am four years old. When I was a baby I used to have some respiratory problems, but as I have been growing this problem has changed and now I only have a few problems when the weather changes. Otherwise, I am in good health. Since I am still young, I am not attending school yet. In my free time, I like watching TV, playing dolls, painting and my favorite cartoon is Peppa pig. My favorite colors are pink and purple, and my favorite animals are dogs and canaries. I love to eat cereal, hard-boiled eggs, beans and chicken. I have just one sister. My father Juan Carlos works as an Evangelism teacher for Living Water in Zone 5 Guatemala. My mother Sheny Elizabeth works in a chicken business in order to help with the expenses. We live in a rented house made of block with tin sheet roof. There are three rooms and a separate kitchen with electricity and running water. We attend a Church called Christian Embassy.
With much love and many blessings,
Libni Gissel Lima Queche
