EL CAJON — East County’s growing Chaldean community is turning to old-school media to create a new voice.
It has started a newspaper. It’s called “Betha Kaldaya,” or Chaldean House, and the nonprofit group behind it came out with a debut issue last month and plans to publish again next week.
“With over 30,000 Chaldeans living in El Cajon, many of whom are newcomers, it is essential to have a media outlet that understands their background, culture and the challenges they are facing,” read the inaugural edition.
