Sambhavna Clinic

Originally opened in 1994 off the back of our first appeal in the Guardian, the Sambhavna Trust Clinic is dedicated to providing free healthcare to survivors of the Bhopal gas disaster and ongoing water poisoning.

Sambhavna is a community clinic in the true sense of the term. Almost half of the staff are survivors themselves, and the running of the centre is supported by a network of community health volunteers.

We are immensely proud to fund the incredible work taking place at Sambhavna, a health centre run by the community, for the community. In addition to Western medicines, Sambhavna also offers treatment using traditional Ayurvedic medicines and yoga therapy. This innovative approach has yielded remarkable results, and Sambhavna's open ecological design, stunning gardens and community atmosphere make for a truly unique experience.

About the Sambhavna Clinic

The work carried out by the Sambhavna Trust has shown that it is possible to evolve simple, safe, effective, ethical and participatory ways of treatment monitoring and research for the survivors of the Bhopal Disasters.
