Arun Kumar was born on the 11th of July 2000, he arrived at Bethany Home in 2006. His mother tragically brought about her own death. His father remarried but his second wife was taken ill and died shortly afterwards. The family found it very difficult to recover from such terrible events. They lived in profound poverty for several years. He is now an auto rickshaw driver. He still earns very little and so B.Joseph decided to take in Arun and his sister to give them an opportunity to follow a good education and live in better conditions.

Arunkumar is a little discreet, but very smiley, he loves to play marbles with his friends and read poems or short plays.
