In the past year Australians made 8.5 million trips overseas. According to the Department of Foreign Affairs, every day 3 of the travelers on these journeys were placed under arrest. Your donations are essential to ensuring that Australians Detained Abroad can continue to support the families of these Australians and offer our services effectively and on a pro-bono basis.
Please note that all donations to Australians Detained Abroad of $2 or more are tax deductible.
