Thanks for visiting The Bhopal Medical Appeal
Thank you for signing the ‘Drop Dow’ petition over at Change.org and for taking your time to visit our website.
The Bhopal Medical Appeal is a small charity and your donations go straight to where they’re needed: the clinics.
Adil (above) was born in the poisoned communities that surround the Union Carbide complex in Bhopal. Like many children living in the factory’s toxic shadow he lives with a crippling disability and will never have the opportunity to compete in a sports event like the London Olympics.
Water and soil contamination in Bhopal, caused by Dow Chemical subsidiary Union Carbide, has caused a second tragedy and many thousands of the city’s people suffer from chronic illnesses associated with poisoned water and soil.
While The Dow Chemical company spend hundreds of millions of dollars sponsoring colleges, sports events and ‘humanitarian projects’ children like Adil continue to suffer.
The Bhopal Medical Appeal supports and funds award-winning facilities in Bhopal that provide free and effective healthcare and therapy to those affected by three decades worth of dumped poison.
