My Story

NE2474

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.

Hello! My name is Skarlet Nohemi Quiroa Villagran. I was born on January 13, 2006 and I am 13 years old. I am in good health and I attend the Zone 5 feeding program. My father’s name is Jaime Yoni Salvador Quiroa Lemus and he is a pastor. My mother’s name is Paula Melisa Villagran Reyes and she is a housewife. We rent the house in which we live. It is cement block with a tin roof and a cement floor. It has two rooms and a separate kitchen. We have electricity and running water. I have one brother and one sister. My oldest sister, Barbara, goes to school, but she also works to help with our expenses. My family is in good health, my siblings and I are still in school. I am in the 7th grade this year, and when I am not in school, I enjoy painting, drawing or listening to music. My favorite color is lilac, and my favorite animal is the rabbit. The food that I like to eat the most is breaded. Family attends a church called “Family of God”.

With much love and many blessings,

Skarlet Nohemi Quiroa Villagran
