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 detained them in Melbourne before forcing them to Christmas Island. Now, three-year-old Tharni has been evacuated to a Perth Hospital.

Biloela wants this family back.
