My Story

Chixocol, where your child lives, is a very small village nestled in a mountain valley in the state of Quiché, Guatemala. Life in this state is very difficult and somewhat isolated from the outside world. Most families live in one-room adobe houses with dirt floors and a small attached kitchen. The extremely poor live in houses made of corn stalks. In the past few years electricity and water has become available to most people in the area - however, indoor plumbing is very rare. Most of the families are farmers or shepherds and live off the fruits of their labors. Public education is available for those who can afford it and consider it of value. Life in Quiché is always a challenge.

Hello! My name is Dayron Abdiel de la Cruz Higueros, and I attend the Chixocol feeding program. I am five years old and I was born on August 20, 2016. I am a healthy boy. I have two sisters and two brothers. I am not attending school because I am still too young. I like to spend my time playing football and toy cars. My favorite color is green, and my favorite pet is the dog. I love to eat sausages with black beans. My father´s name is Francisco Mardoqueo de la Cruz Toj, and he works in a workshop where they make doors and windows in order to supply our needs. My mother´s name is Maria Dolores Higueros Garcia, and she is a housewife. She raises hens and pigs for selling. My family and I attend Living Water Church called Liberty. We have our own house which is made of adobe, tin sheet roof and cement floor. We do not have running water and electricity, but my paternal grandmother shares both services with us because she is our neighbor. My parents share the expenses with my grandmother. We have two rooms with a separate kitchen. My mother brings my siblings and me to the feeding program, and we walk about ten minutes to arrive.

With much love,

Dayron Abdiel de la Cruz Higueros
