Jhaider Enrique Melo Panqueva
Date of birth: November 30, 2010
I live with my parents and siblings. My father’s name is Pablo Enrique Melo Ortiz, and he is 52 years old. My mother’s name is Odilia Panqueva Ruiz, and she is 42 years old. I have four siblings: Samir Enrique, Leidy Nathalia, Jair Enrique, and Saray Valentina. I don’t go to church, and I don’t go to school. I rarely go out with my family because we don’t have enough money to do so.
MY HOME AND COMMUNITY
Our house has two bedrooms where all 7 of us sleep. It also has one bathroom. The walls and floor are made of wood, and the roof is made of metal 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.
