Daniel Nalliah calls on churches & Aussie homes to open up to help refugees (mainly Christian minorities from Syria & Iraq)


Last week, the National President of Rise Up Australia Party sent out an email to his church and political party network asking for churches and Aussie homes to open up and accommodate refugees from Iraq & Syria; under PM Tony Abbott’s plan of taking 12,000 refugees from “persecuted minorities”.

From his office today, Mr Nalliah stated, ”I am so humbled and overwhelmed at the feedback I have received in just the last 2-3 days from churches & simple Aussie families wanting to house these refugees. This shows the real heart of our nation’s people. Thank you so very much for your kindness and willing heart of help.”

Following is a video link to a message on this issue from RUAP President Mr Nalliah.


This morning we spoke with the offices of Government Ministers Peter Dutton (Immigration Minister) & Scott Morrison (Minister for Resettlement, etc.) and they were very interested in our plan to house these refugees. They were also very appreciative of the initiative taken.

We hope the media will run this article and challenge more churches and people to come forward to help these severely persecuted minorities (Christian communities) wanting to flee Syria & Iraq from the wrath of ISIS.

Mr Nalliah continued, “I hope we will drop our personal agendas and unite behind a common cause to help these refugees who might not live another day if ISIS captures more cities in the Middle East.”

Please stay tuned to our website as we will keep you updated with info as to how you could help.

    Im glad we are getting them from the boarder camps rather than the queue jumpers but I would prefer none at all. I dont trust any Arab.

    Hello Daniel

    How can we be sure a refugee is a Christian? If pretending to be a Christian is seen as a way into Australia then how long before opportunists take advantage of this. Reciting a few bible scriptures and saying they love Jesus is not proof they are Christians.

    So, how can we be sure who are the true Christians & not isis impostors or opportunists?

    Also, while it is a lovely gesture to say open your home to the refugees, what exactly does this entail?

    I was watching a discussion hosted by Rachel Smalley and according to her panel of experts on refugees, it can take 3-4yrs before most refugees in NZ have assimilated into society. If this is anything to go by, and given the fact that refugee families from the middle east have large families, you may have between 4-6 people who don’t speak english coming into your home. Do you believe Australian families would take them in for that long? I have had family stay for five weeks at a time and after a few weeks my husband, children and I were looking forward for them to find their own accommodation so we could have our own space. Many people I know are similar in that they don’t mind visitors staying for a few weeks, but after that they need their own space back.

    I do agree to accept first the Christians but am concerned with who is a real Christian and not an impostor. Also, taking people into our homes on a long term basis until they speak english and have jobs etc can take a few years. With all due respect, the novelty of being a good Christian taking in a family may wear off after a few weeks and possibly cause strain in your own family.

    I am writing in response to the email regarding the assisting with Christian refugees when they arrive.

    I am located in the western suburbs of Melbourne and was hoping when the time comes in I can be given information to help in anyway I am able to.

    I am already putting clothes aside to give to these people if that can help in anyway though it’s small help ? keep up the great work and thanks for the updates.

    God bless you all,

    Kind regards,
