My Story

Dueñas, where your child lives, is a small farming village located at the foot of one of Guatemala's active volcanoes, Fuego (Fire). The fertile ground around the village allows for the cultivation of roses and coffee, two of Guatemala's largest exports. Most of the families in this area live in one or two room wooden or adobe houses with tin roofs. Electricity is available to those who can afford it. Running water is available - however, most homes do not have indoor plumbing. Public education is available for those who can afford it and consider education of value. Life in Dueñas is quiet and sometimes difficult.

My name is Yorvin Enrique Ordonez Tubac. I was born on November 13, 2017. I turn 5 years old this year. Due to my age, I am not attending school. So, I enjoy riding a bicycle and playing other games. I love the color red. Ducks are my favorite animals. My favorite meal is fried chicken. I thank God for keeping my family and me healthy. My father´s name is Jose Antonio Ordonez Chip. He works watching over flowers in “El Gilgar” plant nursery to supply our home needs. My mother´s name is Yoseline Patricia Tubac Gonzalez, and she also works in a plant nursery to contribute with the income. I have no siblings. My mother raises ducks and chickens. We live in San Sebastian farm alongside my grandparents and uncles. We have one room and no kitchen so, my mother cooks in the same place with my grandmother. The house is made of wood, tin sheet roof and a concrete floor. We have water and electricity services, and my father pays my grandfather for these expenses every month. I walk 20 minutes to arrive to the feeding program. It is a great blessing for my family and me to be registered in the program. We do not attend church for now. We are a needy family, and our main need is groceries. I thank you for taking the time to read my personal information.

Lot of hugs,

Yorvin Enrique Ordonez Tubac
