Four young men with special needs accompany and assist Leket Israel drivers in collecting and distributing hot meals. The young men, Yair, Liran, Roee and Uri, volunteer as part of the National Service (Sherut Leumi) program as an alternative to military service.
Yair, 20 accompanies driver Gadiel in the Kiryat Gat region. He is in his second year volunteering with Leket and recently received a certificate in recognition of his service. He loves sports and animals, especially his dog, Angie. According to his family, Yair has grown in independence since volunteering with Leket and has grown very close to Gadiel and the organization.
Liran, 19 has been accompanying driver Lidar in central Israel since September. He enjoys soccer, basketball and computers. Before volunteering with Leket, Liran was often starved for company. Now, he gets to socialize and help people throughout the day and Lidar comes to play soccer with him every Saturday.
