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 Kristal de los Angeles Ajcip Mazariegos. I attend the Zone 5 feeding program. I was born on September 29th, 2009. I am nine years old and I am in good health. I am attending second grade at school. In my free time, I like to play dolls, soccer and hide-and-seek. My favorite color is purple, and my favorite animal is the giraffe. I love to eat French Fries and Fried Chicken. I have one brother and three sisters. Sadly, my father Angel Daniel passed away some time ago. Now, my mother Elsy Analy has established a new relationship with Mr. Douglas Roque. He has been living with us for about six years. He works as a truck driver while my mother works as a street vender. We live in a rented house made of tin sheet and cement floors with running water and electricity. We do not attend any Church yet.
With much love and many blessings,
Kristal de los Angeles Ajcip Mazariegos
