Narges and Daryoush, who are suffering ill health in detention, want to be reunited with their mother who they haven’t seen for four years after she was taken to Australia for treatment
“I constantly take sleeping tablets because being awake is too hard,” says Narges. “I understand that as a 27-year-old woman, the Australian Border Force considers me an independent. However, this is not the case in our culture and therefore life without my mother is meaningless for me.”
Narges and her brother, Daryoush, currently languishing on Nauru, have not seen their mother and sister since 2014, despite multiple and repeated officials strongly recommending they be reunited.
