      Who cares who he is, he is still a good human/ person doing good for others who can not do it for themselves. I can do 10km a day and I am stuffed. 12 by 42km after each other, good on you. GO GO GO.

        I’d agree with you if he weren’t Lebanese, just lost hope in people doing good for free in Lebanon.
        In all honesty: did you know who Ali Wehbi was before reading this article?
