My Story

NE-2316

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 Isis Yaynali Toj Sierra. I attend the Zone 5 feeding program. I was born on October 17th, 2009. I am nine years old and I am in good health. I am attending third grade at school. In my free time, I like playing soccer, jumping rope and riding bicycle. My favorite color is purple, and my favorite animal is the rabbit. I love to eat noodles with tomato sauce. I have one brother and no sisters. I live with my mother Maritza Magali, but unfortunately, she does not have a job now. My father is Oscar Humberto. He works as a blacksmith but does not live with us. He recognized me as his daughter, but my mother had to legally demand him. Finally, the judge told him to give her a monthly child support. On the other hand, we live in one-room house made of concrete block, cemented roof and floors. There is running water and electricity, but we do not have any kitchen. We attend a Catholic Church.

With much love and many blessings,

Isis Yaynali Toj Sierra
