Work Experience 2016

We are three year 10 pupils from Dorothy Stringer School. This week, we have been working for the Bhopal Medical Appeal in their Brighton office.

Last year, the Appeal came in to Stringer to deliver a presentation to year 10 Geography students on the industrial disaster of 1984. The presentation really brought the horror of the 32 year old tragedy to life. I think we all felt particularly affected by what happened on that dreadful night, what is still happening today and what has been happening in the 32 years spanning from then until now.

And that is how we came to be sitting at this desk, on a week of work experience, creating a presentation pack to send round to schools in Sussex to raise awareness among the future generation of what happened in Bhopal.

We have had a great time working here and have learnt so much in a friendly environment about Bhopal.

“My experience here at BMA was very positive and extremely useful for my Geography GCSE. I feel that I have gained a deeper insight into the disaster and also know more about the working environment,
particularly in the office.” Freya Clarke

“My work experience here at the Bhopal Medical Appeal has shown me how a team of only a few people can make such a big difference to so many more. The kind and friendly staff radiate positivity, and provide a relaxed but productive working environment. This opportunity has further prompted me to go into a career in charity or international affairs” Harry White

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.
