She was returned to Australia in time for the Sydney Palm Sunday Rally for Refugees in April 2017. In 2018, Nikala began to volunteer for a group of doctors who were very concerned about the medical care provided by Australia to asylum-seekers and refugees in Nauru and Papua New Guinea. Nikala resigned from Doctors for Refugees after seven months but continued to connect people in need. Nikala continues to help people who have significant medical issues to get help and is an advocate of the Medical Evacuation Response Group.
