The fight to save rural Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities

FORGOTTEN CHILDREN OF THE PROMISED LAND

In 2014, I set out on an investigative journalism journey to write about aboriginal outback communities in Australia and how our migration to Australia has affected their future in their homeland.


It first began as an article about suicide prevention, however the more I dug, the more I wanted to tell their story because so many in Australia are unaware of what is really going on out there.


I was lucky enough to have help with information from some special people who fight for the cause and my feature was published on The Stringer Independent News site; which is a multi award winning investigative journalism site run by one of Australia’s Suicide Prevention researchers, Gerry Georgatos.


Gerry published my article on his site after I finished my work and I would like to share the link here for everyone to read.
