Christmas in Bhopal

So, what happens in Bhopal at the time of this Christian festival? Although Christians represent only a relatively small number of Indian people, it is still India’s third most popular religion. In Indian culture, festivals are celebrated with gusto and, in many cases, there seems no reason not to celebrate another’s festival!

At the Chingari Trust Rehabilitation Centre the children were treated to a joyous day with Santa delivering sweets, and music to dance to, and it looks like a good time was had by all.

At Sambhavna, things were somewhat quieter as the clinic closed for the day. Volunteer Ian Jarvis made a lovely video diary post describing the atmosphere. The day before Christmas at Sambhavna.

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.
