Dieu Merci is a 12-year-old boy with dreams to graduate and become a soccer star or an entrepreneur. But right now, he can’t even attend school.
This smart, young boy, whose name means “Thank God” loves school and works hard to read and learn all that he can.
But Dieu Merci doesn’t have clean water to wash his clothes. And this can lead to dangerous and contagious illnesses that would put the other students’ health at risk or even threaten their lives.
And so, for the safety of the other children, they won’t let him in the door, until he has clean water to wash his clothes.
