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 Natalie Abigail Giron Alvarez. I attend the Zone 5 feeding program. I was born on November 10th, 2010. I am eight years old and I am in good health. I am attending first grade at school. In my free time, I like to play tag, to paint and to watch television. My favorite color is red, and my favorite animal is the rabbit. I love to eat soups, chicken, rice and beans. I have just two sisters. I do not know anything about my father because he has never had any communication with us. My mother Claudia Yesenia works by selling fruit smoothies in a public market named Tierrero. We live with my maternal grandmother. There are seven rooms in the house made of concrete block with a tin sheet roof and cement floors. There is running water and electricity. We attend a Church called Ebenezer.
With much love and many blessings,
Natalie Abigail Giron Alvarez
