Andres Felipe Mejia Herrera

Age: 3

Date of birth: April 2, 2010


I live with my parents and my brother.  My father’s name is Neider Jose Mejia Arenilla and he is 36 years old.  My mother’s name is SindirsreeSabet Herrera Ajut and she is 21.  I have an older brother named Neider Jose Mejia Herrera and he is 4 years old.  My favorite food is pasta, although regular nutrition is rare due to our economic situation.  I do not attend church, but I do go to preschool from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  My favorite subject is math.  My health is okay despite the lack of regular nutrition.


We live in a rented house. The floor and walls are made of concrete, and the roof is made of metal sheets.  It has two bedrooms which sleep four people.  There is only one bathroom. It is located in the “Altos de la Florida” neighborhood in Soacha.  We have electricity, but there is no sewer system and water arrives every two weeks.  We have to collect the water in containers to be used for cooking, drinking, washing, and bathing.  The weather is cold and the streets are unpaved.
