Alejandro Bernal Rodriguez
Date of birth: December 7, 2009
I live with my parents and brother. My father’s name is Fredy Bernal Cristancho, and he is 27 years old. My mother’s name is Maria Rodriguez Gaviria, and she is 25 years old. My brother is Sebastian, and he is 8. To support our family, my father works in construction. I like to eat meat, although nutrition in our home is poor due to our economic situation. I don’t go to church, and I don’t go to school.
MY HOME AND COMMUNITY
Our house has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The floor and walls are made of wood, and the roof is made of plastic sheets. It is located in the “Altos de la Florida” neighborhood in Soacha. We have electricity and gas, but there is no sewer system. Water arrives twice per week, and we have to collect it in containers to use it for cooking, bathing, and drinking. The weather is cold and the streets are unpaved.
