Home lost in fire - Somerville, MA

On Thursday May 5th 2016, Kauthamy Kanthithasan's Somerville home caught fire from a neighboring building – she lost her home and ALL of her belongings. 

Thankfully, Kauthamy and her family were not injured during this fire and are safe. However, they have will have to replace everything that was in their home 

A few us (Kauthamy’s colleagues) have set up this account on behalf of Kauthamy to help the family with this process– we know that many other people have shared interest in helping as well. We would all greatly appreciate anything that you may be able to contribute to the family during this difficult time.
