Our colleague Avvy Phull was a victim of a house fire on the night of 7th December. Thankfully she, her husband and 20 month old son got out in time and after hospital treatment, they will recover. However, their home and all its contents have been destroyed. They are left with the clothes they stood up in. Nothing is retrievable. Initial estimates are that it will take 6 months to make the house structurally sound and safe for them to move back in.
