Lois Matias Garcia Cardenas
Date of birth: December 20, 2009
I live with my parents and sisters. My father’s name is Jose Garcia Cruz, and he is 35 years old. My mother’s name is Luz Estella Cardenas, and she is 23 years old. I have two sisters, Gisell Naomi and Dana Sofia. They are 7 and 1 year old respectively. I like to eat rice pudding , although nutrition in our home is poor due to our economic situation. I don’t go to church because there is none close to where I live. I attend school daily from 8:00am to 2:30pm. I am in preschool.
MY HOME AND COMMUNITY
Our house has two bedrooms and 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.
