House fire is something that leaves lasting scars on the person psyche. The feeling of apathy and loneliness are just some things that a victim will experience, and thus they need some form of outside help that will ensure them that they aren’t alone.
Victim needs you beside them
You should offer support to the victim on both mental and physical level. Just go to them and show them that there are people that will help them. Don’t speak about better days; just say that you feel for their loss and that it’s good that they are okay. Don’t be the center of the conversation as the victim doesn’t need a preacher, they need a listener. Just shut up and listen to them because that is a perfect way to help.Another way to help the victim is to offer them support in the form of money. They probably filed for the insurance money, but they won’t receive it for a long time, and thus they require some cash to live until then. Offer them some, even if you don’t have a lot because it will help. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they want and offer it to them. If they have to contact a bunch of people, then offer your help and do that for them. It won’t cost you a lot, and it will mean everything to them. It may not be something new but stick with victims through the whole process of recovery. Be there and help them get through the entire insurance claim process as well as their mental recovery. This won’t burden you in any way, and it will mean the world to them because they will be assured that there are people who are real friends around them.
You shouldn’t be the only one that helps
Other people will assist the victim, and you should make contact and allow them to do it. Check whether the Red Cross has something to share and talk with other friends and neighbors about the possibility of donations. You will be surprised by the generosity of the people around you.
