About Us

Sambhavna’ is a Hindi/Sanskrit word meaning "possibility". Read as "sama" and "bhavna" it means similar feelings or “compassion”. The Sambhavna Trust was founded 11 years after the Union Carbide gas disaster in Bhopal to provide medical care to the survivors who were battling a range of chronic diseases caused by their acute exposure to toxic gas on the midnight of 2-3 December, 1984. In the years following the disaster, because Union Carbide withheld medical information on the leaked gases, doctors in Bhopal could only respond with symptomatic medicines which potentially caused additional harm to the survivors. Sambhavna was founded in 1995 to create possibilities in healthcare of the poisoned people through judicious integration of Ayurveda and Yoga with Modern medicine, active intervention in community health and community-based information generation and dissemination. Today, close to 36 thousand individuals are registered for free long-term medical care at the Sambhavna Trust Clinic. The Clinic also carries out community health work and conducts research on long-term health impact of toxic exposure. Over 100 kinds of medicinal plants are grown organically in the Clinic’s garden that are used to manufacture over 80 kinds of Ayurvedic medicines for use in the Clinic. In the last 24 years the Clinic has been funded with small donations from over 30 thousand individuals. As a matter of policy, the Trust does not accept funds from corporations, governments and large funding agencies. The Sambhavna Trust Clinic is mostly run by the 60 staff members following principles of self-governance.

Our Mission

\"To Improve the status of health and healthcare of those poisoned by Union Carbide Corporation, USA in Bhopal, India through healthcare, medical research, information disseminationand community health interventions\". We are radically different from most other healthcare centres and NGOs

Funding

Unlike most other NGOs, the Sambhavna Trust clinic (Clinic) does not run on funds from corporations, government agencies or large funding agencies. Since its inception in 1996 the Clinic has been running on small donations from over 30,000 individuals.

Administration

Unlike most other healthcare centres and NGOs, the Clinic is largely run by its staff of 60 through the principles of self-governance. The Steering Committee is elected from among the staff and together with eight other committees ensure the smooth running of the Clinic following rules made by the staff themselves.

Building

Unlike most other healthcare centres, the Clinics building and its environs have been built with special attention to ecological considerations. Care has been taken in its construction to eliminate the use of PVC, synthetic chemicals and materials known to be harmful to human health and the environment.

Health Care

Unlike in any other healthcare centre, persons registered at the Clinic have access to medical care through Ayurveda, Yoga and Modern medicine, singly or together. A person with Cervical spondylosis, Diabetes and Psoraisis would thus be provided care at the Clinic by means of Yoga, Modern medicine and Ayurveda respectively for each of the disease.

Follow-up

Unlike in most other healthcare centres, persons receiving care at the clinic are followed up by Clinic’s staff through phone calls and house visits regarding their health condition, compliance of medical advice and referrals to other healthcare centres.

Medical Waste

Unlike in most other healthcare centres, the medical waste generated at the Clinic is not sent for incineration (a process that significantly contributes Dioxines and Furans to the environment). Following principles of healthcare – without – harm, medical waste at the Clinic is treated through solar disinfection.
