My Story


Hello! Let me begin by thanking you for taking the time to read my update. I want to tell you that I walk for one hour to arrive to the feeding program. I am Francisco but everybody affectionately calls me Chico. I am 11 years old and I will have my birthday in December. I dropped out of school some years ago because I did not want to study. So, during this time I have been helping my mother with some work at home. In my free time I enjoy playing football.

The people who live in the house are my mother, siblings and me. My mother´s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. Moreover she raises domestic animals. My father´s job consists of farming the land and working as a day laborer. Currently he is living and working in a Chichicastenango village. He calls us but lately he does not give us money for our expenses. Thank God my older brothers work by farming the land and are helping my mother with some money. My family and I are members of Full Gospel Church. I am grateful to God because we all are in good health. In spite of the hard health situation that we are currently facing in our country, our Lord has been taking care of us. We trust in our Lord's mercy and that He will put His healing hands over all people who are suffering during this pandemic. I would like to receive a letter from you and have the opportunity to share our life experiences with each other.

God bless you!
