Due to chronic unemployment, many families live in such dire poverty that they cannot feed their children or pay for them to attend school. With little to no social services available in Haiti, many families must seek alternative care for their children.
Kalens Salomon was born on December 12, 2012 in a small town called Dessalines located in the province of Artibonite, Haiti. He is the youngest of eight. His parents are farmers but barely grow enough crops to satisfy their needs. He and his older sister Esperantha were admitted to the orphanage because his parents could no longer take care of them due to their precarious economic situation.
Kalens is a bit shy but is mentally and physically fit. He has a very good appetite and is doing fine at the Fontana Children’s Village.
Kalens Salomon is currently fully sponsored.
