Juan Camilo Castro Ortega
Date of birth: November 2, 2007
I live with my uncle, my aunt, and my cousins. My uncle’s name is Nelson Zea Perez, and he is 36 years old. My aunt’s name is Luz Marina Castro Ortega, and she is 24 years old. I have 6 cousins: Nelson David, Karen Lizeth, Jomara Nicol, Johan Stiven, Yan Carlos, and Dayan.
I like to eat pasta, although food is scarce in our home due to our economic situation. I don’t go to church, and I attend school daily from 7:00am to 12:00pm. I am in preschool.
MY HOME AND COMMUNITY
Our house has two bedrooms where all 9 of us sleep. It also has one bathroom. The floor is the ground, the walls 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.
