Visa to heaven

A 6 year old child who has been in detention now for 3 years, has said she wants to die, if heaven would give her a visa!

Her 9 year old brother is self-injuring due to sustained trauma in detention and witnessing the repetitive physical abuse of his father by security operations when his father pleads on behalf of his family and other asylum seekers.

The children’s mother has had prolonged delays in assessment and treatment of multiple renal stones which developed on Nauru, no doubt largely due to chronic dehydration with water restrictions and high phosphate contaminated water.

This family continue to languish in detention.
