Do iPod Touch 7 parts exist?

I am trying to repair an iPod Touch, 7th Generation model #MVHW2VC/A (A217B). The LCD screen and digitizer are crushed. Both the front camera, back camera and flash no longer work. Everything else seems OK. The problem is, I cannot find a single part for this device anywhere on Planet Earth. I saw one listing on eBay where a guy was selling iPod Touch 5th gen screens and said they *might* work in 7th gen. I’m in Canada and I sent a parts request to the largest Apple parts supplier in the country and they basically said, yeah we can’t find any parts either.

So the question is, does anybody anywhere carry parts for this model or are the parts identical to iPod Touch 6th gen parts which are in turn identical to iPod 5th gen parts? Not sure how a device made in 2012 can have the exact same components as a twice upgraded 2019 device. Does anybody have an answer to this? The person is waiting to get their device back and I can’t be spending weeks ordering parts and taking a device apart to find out the parts don’t fit and somehow put the shattered screen back on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The LCD/Digitizer from the iPod Touch 6th Generation should work in this iPod. You can also use the guide from the 6th Generation iPod Touch to replace your screen.
