When bed bugs bite!

Our case this time is a single mum with three young children, the youngest being just two years old.  Unfortunately their flat has become infested with bed bugs.  She is in social housing and contacted her council to aler them to this, but they have told her she needs to pay £275 to have this inspected and then treated.  This does cover several visits to ensure all of the bed bugs have been got rid of, but she does not have the money to pay for this, or any of it in fact.  The young woman is in debt, so we arranged for half the money £140 to be paid to a family member on her behalf, and her family are hoping to help her with the rest of the money she needs.
