Lady in distress.....Hobart-Carlton area

Short story. Can you lend or donate a left hand shifter please?

Long story. Our friend Anita, an avid cyclist, who recently rode 1680 km and raised over $1000 for Fighting Kids Cancer, in October, has had an accident involving some signage stand left behind by road workers. Damage includes destruction of her left hand brake lever/gear shifter. It is Shimano Sora/Tiagra for double chainrings.

She has had a new bike on order since late October, however it looks like being New Year before it is delivered. Another problem is that her bike shop is flat stick with Christmas looming and cant even look at her damage until after Christmas.
Anita has brought her bike to me, and I can repair the buckled wheel, straighten the saddle frame, and get her back on the road if I can find a left side shifter.

Any offers of help will be appreciated.
