The 1984 Union Carbide gas tragedy, that killed up to 10,000 of the citizens of Bhopal within 72 hours, has gone on to claim another 25,000 lives to date. The original site of the heavily-polluted pesticide plant was never cleared up and remains, as referred to by Greenpeace, one of the world's 'toxic hotspots'. Thousands families have, for decades, been using water contaminated with toxic chemicals as their primary supply leading to serious illnesses, including cancers, and a spate of birth defects in their children. This ongoing project is commissioned by The Bhopal Medical Appeal.
