Melvin’s siblings are: Heidi, who is 7 years old and sponsored here at AOJ but does not study as she is a special needs child, and little Alis Sofía, who is 2 years old. This family's house is made of block. It has 2 beds and a wardrobe, and they have a wooden table and 4 plastic chairs. The roof of the kitchen is made of sheet metal and pieces of wood.
