It's been 28 years since the people of Bhopal, India awoke in a cloud of gas 500 times more toxic than cyanide. Thousands of people died. Sadly, the poisoning continues to this day. Fortunately, the people have a strong advocate in the Bhopal Medical Appeal. Talkupy with Annie Lindstrom welcomes Colin Toogood, Campaigns Manager for the Bhopal Medical Appeal, to the show Thursday, Feb. 21 at 11 a.m. Eastern Time. Many are unaware that the disaster in Bhopal continues to this day. An estimated 120,000–150,000 survivors are chronically ill. The Bhopal Medical Appeal raises awareness of the situation and funds for the Chingari Rehabilitation Centre and the Sambhavna Clinic, which has treated more than 35,000 people since 1996. Colin will talk about the unique work and ethos of the clinics as well as ongoing efforts to get the contaminated grounds and water cleaned up so the people can finally recover from the disaster.
