You will evoke together subjects so diverse as important, that are the nobility and the difficulties of their responsibilities, the enthusiasm and the energy that require such a commitment, the success and the failures of their tasks, the financial concerns and the relations with the lessors and the donors, the administrative harassments which sometimes block the road, the joys and sorrows of this life of solidarity.
