On the 28th anniversary of the Bhopal Disaster the BGPNPBSM, representing the survivors rights to a pension, held a protest rally and burned an five-headed effigy designed to represent US corporate figures responsible for the disaster in Bhopal, along with Indain Government officials, and to protest the continued lack of justice.

The children are brought here by their families for help with physiotherapy, occupational and speech therapy and other treatments. Even though they play and appear to be happy they will rarely recover from their illnesses. Their lives will be short and often painful. These children are a part of the legacy of Union Carbide in Bhopal. Created by the 2004 Goldman Environmental Award winners Rashida Bee and Champa Devi Shukla, the Chingari Trust is a non-political, non-profit organization committed to protecting the survivors of the 1984 Union Carbide Gas Disaster in Bhopal along with the local communities that are affected by the continuous industrial hazards present as a result of the abandoned Union Carbide factory (now wholly owned by Dow Chemical Corporation). The Chingari Trust Rehabilitation Centre helps children born with mental or physical disabilities as a result of their parents’ exposure to either the toxic gas of the 1984 Bhopal Disaster or to the contaminated water still found in the area.

We believe Dow & DuPont must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
