Lomani Au Children’s Home
The English translation of Lomani Au is “I am loved” or "somebody loves me”, but in the Fijian culture the meaning is much deeper, often being referred to in hymns as a very special and unconditional love, an unselfish love that gives without seeking anything in return. We are passionate about ensuring every child who is placed in our care experiences “lomani au”.
The Lomani Au Children's Home is situated on a beautiful 3.5 acre property beside the sea in Savusavu on the island of Vanua Levu, Fiji.
Lomani Au Children's Home was officially opened on March 16th 2013 by the “Minister for Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation”, Dr Jiko Luveni.
Since the opening of the home, a number of precious smiling faces have joined the Lomani Au family. We continue to have a wonderful working relationship with Social Welfare as we care for the children of Fiji.
