Friday 19th to Sunday 28th Oct is National Children’s Week
This is a week to celebrate and applaud the achievements of our young people, which is why this week we are proud to see our Youth Ambassadors standing up for the children of Nauru.
For too long children and their families have been trapped on the island of Nauru in cruel and inhumane conditions without adequate health, education or employment options.
That is why our Youth Ambassadors are calling on Australia's political leaders, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, to free the 95 children trapped on Nauru by Universal Children's Day on 20th November.
“They are the “Foreign Children” that we are told to ignore, but how do we sleep at night, knowing they are begging to die? When the decision to save them is simple! I urge the government to show some compassion, put politics aside and to bring those children to safety, to have the opportunity to heal from the trauma they have endured. A child’s wellbeing is everyone’s business!"
