Iraqi refugee boy

We left Iraq because my father in danger, they put him in gaol many times and my mother pay money and beg for him. We went to Christmas Island and they took all my medicine. I have rheumatic fever and have antibiotics, always antibiotics. Then they send us to Nauru and I get medicine again but still I’m sick. I don’t go to school because we are scared and I’m sick. My mother cries a lot and we stay in the house. Sometimes people come and bang on the door. One time they break the window.
Q: what do you want to be when you grow up?
A: anything, free.

Kathi Hildebrand Your stories are very important to open the eyes of those many Australians who do have a heart if only they understood what detention does to you. You are not forgotten. We will keep lobbying the government but the people must all stand up & demand justice for you. It is the people of Australia who must find their voices of compassion to influence the govt. position on detention & find a better policy.

Lucy Kert There are many Australian people who are hurting and working hard to free the children and their families from Nauru. I continue to pray and hope that a solution to this cruel situation can be found quickly. You are all very brave children and I am ashamed of what our Government is doing in our name. Never give up!!

Gay Louise Maynard There are many people reading your posts and their hearts are with you. Thank you for having the courage to tell your story. I hope that you and your family can take some comfort from all the thoughts and love of those who have responded to you on Facebook. There are many Australians who are trying hard to make our government change its harsh policies towards asylum seekers.
