#KIDSOFFNAURU

There are 107 children in detention on Nauru not allowed to leave this tiny island the size of Melbourne Airport.

Children in detention on Nauru have recently witnessed lipstitching, self-immolation and other suicide attempts. There are limited safe or pleasant places to play because of unshaded, hot phosphate rock and the fear of wild dogs on the island.

The children languishing on Nauru, must be resettled, assessed for psychosocial care, and allowed a normal, healthy childhood by Universal Children's Day.

If you believe locking up children is never the answer, join the call for our leaders to get #kidsoffnauru

Dear Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten,

We would never allow our children to grow up like this. The world refugee crisis is a complex problem - but locking up children is never the answer. Children and their families are trapped on the island of Nauru in cruel and inhumane conditions without adequate health, education or employment options. We call on you, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten - Australia's Political Leaders, to free the 109 children trapped on Nauru by Universal Children's Day.

We need to bring them here and either offer resettlement in Australia or find another suitable country that welcomes them.
