Bring this family home to Biloela

Bring this family home to Biloela

For four years, Priya and Nades lived quiet lives in Biloela, a QLD town that needs new families to keep local services running.

Nades was a valued employee at the local meatworks, working hard to provide for his young family. Priya joined church groups and took her curries to doctors at the local hospital, where her two little daughters were born.

But one single day after Priya’s visa expired in March 2018, Border Force took this beautiful family 1,800km away from Biloela to a Melbourne detention centre.

Biloela wants this family back.
