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 worked hard at the local meatworks to provide for his young family. Priya joined church groups and took her curries to doctors at the local hospital.

In March 2018, Border Force took Priya, Nades and their QLD-born girls away, detaining them in Melbourne before forcing them to Christmas Island. 4 year old Tharni was medically evacuated to Perth, but politicians are STILL stopping this family coming home to Biloela.

Biloela wants this family back.
