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.

But one single day after Priya’s visa expired in March 2018, Border Force took this beautiful family away and put them in a Melbourne detention centre. Now they're being held on Christmas Island, 5,000km from Biloela.

Biloela wants this family back.
