Hero of the month
During the month of July Lucas Oppliger, a motivated, cheerful young electronics specialist from Switzerland, came to help out at A.I.R Tel Aviv rather than spending his vacation in Miami with his friends.
Through a friend who works with trafficking victims in Switzerland, Lucas realized that human trafficking is a topic that is relevant to every person, and that everyone carries responsibility. He decided to do something about it.
After seeing a video where A.I.R. asked for volunteers, he decided to invest time and use his many talents to do whatever was necessary and wasn't getting done at the start-up. His goal: to do something to help people with a difficult background reintegrate into society. He also wanted to check out a new country and get away from his 'normal' life for a bit.
Lucas' time in Israel with A.I.R. was intense, a time where he was able to make a big difference in a small amount of time. With his helpful and cheerful character and his amazing and creative ideas, he solved problems with the materials at hand and did many things that no one had time to do.
Lucas is starting his civil service with at-risk youth in Switzerland in August, so we had to let him go. But he left his legacy and we are thankful for the two weeks he spent with us at A.I.R.
