Morris Fresh IGA in Innaloo donated about two months of groceries to the family and customers bought items to add to the staff members� effort.

Owner manager Sahib Singh was shocked the horrific incident happened so close to home and said he was encouraged to support the family through customers who knew them.

�If we can�t help our own people, it�s very difficult to expect other people to help us when it�s our turn,� he said.

�It�s really important for us to back up our claim that we are a part of the local community, we are here to be part of it.

�When you do see something like this happen in your local community you need to put out as much support as possible in whatever means you can.�

The toddler�s aunt thanked the community for its support and good wishes for their �princess�.

The toddler�s maternal aunt, who did not want to be named, has also set up a GoFundMe page as a response to community requests to assist the family financially.

Within five days, the community donated more than $4000.

The aunt said she appreciated the community�s prayers and support that were helping her family get through this horrific time.

�As hard as it is at a time like this we are trying to remain positive and strong for our princess and family by helping each other, sticking together and just taking one day at a time,� she said.

�Also, everyone’s support has really helped us remain strong and we cannot thank you all enough.�

The toddler spent a week in critical but stable condition in the intensive care unit at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) where she spent her fourth birthday.

She got out of the ICU on the weekend but will remain in PMH for treatment.

Her aunt said the family�s immediate concerns now were the pain, stress and fear she was feeling and the long road ahead to return to her bubbly self.

She described her niece as a cheerful, fun, loving, beautiful and caring girl who loves the Wiggles, story time and giggling.
