Abdul is the third born in a large family of five. Sadly his mother passed away when he was only nine days old. Abdul began attending Noah’s Ark day care centre on 16 January 2014 at the age of 5.
Abdul lives with his father and stepmother to which his father supports the family through casual jobs in the local town, such as transporting people’s luggage on a cart. However he suffers from very poor health, and this sometimes results in irregular work making it very difficult for him to sufficiently provide for his five children.
