Fasting in solidarity with Bhopal families
Yesterday they took part in a demonstration after being shown around the Bhopal Sambhavna medical aid clinic and the great facilities they have and the excellent work they are doing to support the victims of their families.
The facility also includes a clinic for children who have been poisoned by Union Carbide. The Chingari rehab clinic supports over 200 children who have suffered due to the poison from the chemical spill from the Bhopal plant. Since its inception in 2006, Chingari, founded by gas victims Rashida Bee and Champa Devi Shukla, has helped 740 children and grandchildren of gas victims. (The Hindu newspaper)
Sam and Scott are sending regular updates but are having some technical communication problems. Scott Donohoe hopes to get more pictures to us when he gets to Mumbai.
