The temperature during school time is still extremely hot in Beirut.
"I really wonder if I'll get used to having a sweaty forehead, to hearing the constant noise of the horns at the bottom of the building where the volunteers live. Right now, they are preparing to face the heat, the exhausts pipes and the noise of the street to join the children of the district of Badaro, there they will do some homework, some games.
As they pass the door of the apartment, a phone rings... it's Jean-Paul, the wholesaler who works with the association: "the driver is at the entrance of the building, the packages are there." The volunteers come down. A van is parked near the path and the other vehicles narrowly avoid it by cursing and blowing their horns!
Two volunteers prepare to receive the packages... the side door of the truck opens... "there are fewer boxes than usual ", " yes this time these are supplies for the school supplies", it is not food donations." (phew... food packages are delivered by sixty and weigh each twenty-five kgs. each! )"
