She not only lost her parents and siblings, but also suffered 75% burns to her whole body, and only survived the fire because her father protected her with his body.

Since the arson attack two years ago, she has shown bravery beyond her years, undergoing multiple operations, which now total more than 50.

She lost her right hand and left foot in the months following the fire, and faces another operation on January 5th.

Now living with her Aunt, Safyre saw the Christmas tree in the family home, and said “I can’t wait to fill it up”, and after putting the request on Facebook and seeing it go viral, her Aunt is hoping that will be the case.
