To all friends of Treasure House, I thought I’d take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Ulamila Cakau and I hail from village of Kocoma, Qamea Island Cakaudrove Fiji.
Once a high school teacher for 6 years then left to work for the local newspapers Fiji Sun and also the Fiji Times. Also worked for local newspapers in Western Sydney once.
I gave up secular work to help alongside my husband who is a church minister.
The church in located in the canebelt of Sabeto took on the Treasure House orphanage in year 2005.
On average, we say goodbye to 11 children annually from Treasure House. Some of these children keep in contact with us and this is wonderful to learn how they have gone into wonderful homes, attend wonderful schools, enjoy a new set of siblings and their new life and new culture.
Into the future many more children will come but we are hopeful that they will also find forever homes and forever families with a new and great vision for life and the world.
Thank you for your interest in Treasure House and for your support
