At The Mercy Of Another Invisible Killer

35 years ago in Bhopal, a vast cloud of toxic MIC gas leaked without warning from a Union Carbide pesticides factory. Thousands suffocated to death. Over half a million are left with permanent injuries that greatly heighten their vulnerability to Covid-19. As the majority present multiple co-morbidities medical workers insist that they are at least five times more vulnerable to Covid-19.

Community Mobilisation Plan

On the day of Bhopal’s first Covid-19 death some of the poorest people on earth, lacking adequate protective equipment, testing kits, financial or other resources agreed a demanding and dangerous plan of action designed to monitor and suppress the spread of the virus within their own communities

NGO & Local Govt. Action Plan

Six weeks after survivor organisations first sounded the alarm, on May 3rd Bhopal authorities agreed to comprehensively support their initiatives with a mass program of monitoring, testing and treatment for those most at risk due to existing co-morbidities.

We believe Dow 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.
