Show your support for baby Asha and the staff at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital

The brave nurses and doctors of Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in Brisbane are refusing to discharge Asha, an Australian-born one-year-old baby, who is set to be deported to Nauru detention centre.

The staff at Lady Cilento know conditions on Nauru will harm baby Asha physically and mentally. They’ve taken a pledge to do no harm and they’re refusing to break it.

They’re doing the right thing.

Send your message of support here. You can also upload a photo of yourself, your workplace or your family holding a #LetThemStay sign (download the sign here).

Stand with baby Asha and the brave staff fighting for her in Brisbane.

    You are all such great examples of the best of humanity and I’m proud to be part of the workers of this country. If only our politicians could show the same humanity we would not have a divided community. All the best and thank you for your wonderfully humane efforts.

    Thank you for protecting baby Asha. I don’t believe Nauru is a safe and healthy place for her and it’s heartening to see professionals willing to step in to ensure her well-being and healthy development.

    Thank you so much for providing leadership in relation to how Australia should be treating asylum seekers. So many of our politicians are letting us down so it is inspiring when health workers have the compassion and courage to stand up for the values of care, justice and solidarity in our troubled times. You have my support.

    I cannot believe that ANY of our politicians genuinely believes that it’s OK to imprison and punish innocent children – and even put some them in harm’s way – in order to deter others from replicating their actions. I thought Christians did not believe that the ends justify the means!

    Thank you to the staff of Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital for showing the Australian Government that the welfare of individuals is as important as ‘Protecting Borders’. It’s not about politics. It’s about compassion, and the actions you are taking to protect this child demonstrate a community worthy of protecting its borders. Inclusion is the key to a community’s survival, not exclusion. Compassion is the action to ensure this inclusion. Congratulations, you are doing what is best for our country!
