About Us

"It was important to begin a health fund to provide appropriate response for the Bhopal survivors...the clinic really filled a major gap in providing the help that people needed."

-Barbara Dinham, Co-Founder of the Bhopal Medical Appeal

Our first Bhopal Medical Appeal appeared in The Guardian and The Observer on the 10th anniversary of the disaster in December 1994 and received an overwhelmingly generous response from the British public.

The funds from that first appeal were sufficient to setup the Sambhavna clinic, a community health centre built to deliver free first-class medical care to survivors of the disaster. "Sambhavna" means "possibilities in compassion", a name designed to reflect the incredible compassion and courage displayed by the survivors and their fierce determination to care for one another in defiance of the injustice they had suffered. Since 2009, we have also funded the Chingari Children's clinic, which provides care to disabled children born into gas-affected families. The centre now provide regular physical and speech therapy, as well as special education, to more than 250 children. "Chingari" means "spark".

What We Do

The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two free healthcare clinics for survivors of the Bhopal gas disaster and ongoing water contamination - The Sambhavna Trust Clinic and the Chingari Rehabilitation Centre.
