Local charity heads to Bhopal
Local charity Children's World International are heading to Bhopal, India for their next project. Bhopal was the area in India that was poisoned by a chemical leak from the Union Carbine factory back in December 1984. Thousands of people died that night and thousands more have died since then. The pollution led to children being born with birth defects and the population is still being affected today.
"Having met the Bhopal Medical Appeal, a charity that runs 2 clinics in Bhopal, we realised that our program of fun and games would be of real value to the children and families of Bhopal. Our program has been described as 'Psycho-Social' work - it gives communities a real morale boost. Light relief and entertainment really helps people deal with ongoing stress and trauma of their everyday lives." said charity Co-director Paddy Hill
"There are many tragedies around the world and we are regularly asked to visit these areas, but we chose Bhopal because this was an event that happened nearly 30 years ago and children are still suffering from it's effects today. We want the people of Bhopal to know we haven't forgotten their plight.
We leave 8th January and will stay for 2 weeks, aiming to run 20 shows around the Bhopal area visiting schools and communities.
