We have been reporting on the health and safety of manganese mineworkers, an issue we highlighted in our story about 18 workers who have developed a strange health condition with symptoms similar to those of Parkinson’s disease. They include trembling, stiffness, slow motor movement and potentially-severe depression, anxiety and hostility.

MakanDay, a nonprofit investigative newsroom, would like to hear from those affected and others with knowledge about this topic to help guide our coverage.

We appreciate you sharing your story, and we take your privacy seriously. We are gathering these stories for the purposes of our reporting, and we will contact you if we wish to publish any part of your story. We may not be able to look into every tip, but we appreciate each one we receive and they will help shape our reporting.
