We fund two clinics in Bhopal to help the survivors of the 1984 Disaster


In September, we are headed on an overland adventure through Europe, , , , and . Don’t worry, this is NOT a plea for you to subsidise our trip!

We are going overland because flying produces ten times as much carbon dioxide as the trains and buses we’ll be taking. As you know, human-created carbon emissions contribute massively to climate change, which currently kills around 300,000 people every single year. So we’re trying to minimise our impact as much as we can.

One of the places we’ll be staying is the Sambhavna Clinic, in . This is where you come in.

Human-caused climate change is increasingly proving itself to be the greatest environmental and humanitarian disaster facing civilisation. It is the same profit-driven interests which are perpetuating this devastation which allowed the gas leak in to occur in 1984, killing over 25,000 people and affecting the lives of hundreds of thousands. See for more details.

The Sambhavna Clinic, situated in the worst affected area of , is the only centre offering free and rational treatment to anyone who might need it. The work they do is absolutely necessary and completely incredible.

We will volunteer there for at least a month to offer any help that we can, but we understand that most people do not have the time to offer their voluntary services. Therefore please support us in our low-carbon efforts by donating to the Bhopal Medical Appeal, which funds the Sambhavna Clinic.
