    To feel useful, she has asked that we send the photos taken by the drones.

    “Maybe this will be my eyes that will find a detail, something, so that we can know what happened,” hope is the mother of a family.

    The research carried out by Magnus International would be very expensive and exceed the million dollars. Mrs. Clamen like to thank all the people who participated in the fundraising campaigns in line, which helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Recovery research

    “The jewish communities and in montreal, as here, have been amazing. Even strangers have wanted to help. It has helped me to continue ! ” exclaimed Alisa Clamen, grateful.

    The journey of Jesse Galganov was to last eight months. On the 25th of December would have marked the end of his time in South America.

    “Normally, it would be on the road to the South-East Asia. It’s crazy, all that has changed since “, breath Ms. Clamen.

    The research in the field is expected to resume after the New Year. The mother of Jesse did not rule out the possibility of returning to Peru to help the teams from israel.

    During the search for his son, the internet companies and phone Apple, Amazon and T-Mobile have put a lot of time to provide secure data contained in the electronic devices of Jesse. They have come to obey him, after that online petitions began to circulate.

    “If they had acted faster, maybe we would not be here. We will surely never, ” said Mrs. Clamen.
