To be admitted to a private hospital which is very expensive, a patient must have civil status. If a patient such as Jean wanted to be treated free, he must have the mayor of his town sign a certificate stating that his family is indeed poor. The Minister of Health has to consent to his being treated as do the administrators and doctors at the hospital. Since Jean can’t get around on his own, he relies on the Sisters to get the papers signed.

The new car is more than a vehicle to transport documents or even medical supplies. It is an integral part in the lives of Jocelyne, Francoise, Jean and other children of the Karm-Zeitoun quarter. By depending on Sister to take them to the clinic or to school, the children leave behind the miserable conditions of the quarter. With new-found skills, there is hope that one day they may travel beyond the quarter, without Sister, thanks to her wheels!
