ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Dirty water can be deadly for children. Nearly 1,000 children under the age of five die each day in the developing world from diseases caused by contaminated water.

Christine Connolly Bell helps us understand the global water crisis and what we can do to make a difference in our own neighborhoods.


Local events are happening in St. Louis, Wentzville and Kirkwood!
