In 3 working days, the team managed to renovate the site with a professional touch of plastering and painting. The sports center would be used as a public arena for Damour’s citizens to exercise, and would later be supplied with suitable machines and sports training equipment.

The class-rooms were renovated and treated with a coat of fresh paint. Let’s not forget that prior to the camp, ASCE at AUB has conducted a book donation campaign. These books were then used to supply the school’s library, having them of efficient educational use to students of all levels.
