Befriend a Child in Detention is a community project committed to seeing an end to the detention of child asylum seekers. We aim to inspire and support compassionate Australians to make a positive connection with the children and families living in detention: to ameliorate their experience, to raise awareness of their circumstances, and to advocate for positive change.

There are currently 157 refugee and asylum seeker children living on Nauru.


OUR LATEST SHIPMENT TO NAURU 

Befriend a Child in Detention has just sent 22 boxes of books, toys, games,
pens and pencils to the refugee and asylum seeker children on Nauru. While
almost all items were donated, we spent over $2,000 actually shipping the
boxes to Nauru.

Can you pitch in to help us cover the cost of shipping?

Any donation, small or large is appreciated. You can donate by bank transfer to
NATIONAL AUSTRALIA BANK (NAB)
BEFRIEND A CHILD IN DETENTION

BSB: 083170
ACCOUNT NUMBER: 201272889

Or send us a cheque to

CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS COMMUNITY

Please email project@befriendachild.com after you make a donation so we can send you a tax deductible receipt.

Many thanks,
The Befriend a Child in Detention team

    Thank you for all you are doing! Sometimes it seems such a long, hard battle to get these children out of detention. One day we will succeed, but in the meantime, projects such as this at least bring a little pleasure and hope into their lives.
