The world refugee crisis is a complex problem - but locking up children is never the answer.

Despite hundreds of thousands of Australians calling for action, 17 children are still trapped on Nauru and it's possible that those evacuated for medical attention will be returned.

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.
