Kalai Arsan

Kalai was born on 23rd of December 1997, he arrived at Bethany Home in 2009. His father’s first wife died of tuberculosis, and the two children from this marriage (elder half-siblings of Kalai) also lived and studied at Bethany Home many years before his arrival. His father re-married and had two more children. Kalai is the youngest. His mother is an agricultural laborer, earning very little. Saddly, his father is very unwell and has therefore been unemployed for many years, though he comes to visit his son regularly.

Kalai is outgoing and energetic. He loves meeting new people, laughing, and has a particular musical talent (he enjoys using everything around him as a makeshift drum kit). He is loved by the entire Home and has gained many new brothers.
