Ubelia, a four-year-old Guatemalan girl, drinks soda offered by representatives of the NGO "Nuestros Derechos" on a sidewalk that borders the upscale Zona Viva in Guatemala City, Guatemala on Monday night, June 13, 2005. Ubelia is one of seven children that live with their parents, including mother Claudia Leticia Roque Jolón (cq), next to the giant trash dump in Zone 3. Claudia, 35, said she has lived in El Basurero for 7 years, and has spent 12 years living in the street. The family lives now in a two-room shanty with dirt floors, a garbage- and filth-strewn back yard and scores of flies.
