THE STORY:

The working elephants of Thailand need your help right now. Like all of us, they get sick and injured, have babies and sometimes suffer catastrophic wounds from forgotten land mines from long ago conflicts. Where is the emergency room or immediate care clinic for elephants?

Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital near Lampang, Thailand offers full service medical care just for elephants. They have the infirmaries, veterinarians, drugs and medical equipment needed to quickly handle any injury or sickness. Among their unique facilities are a mobile vet lab and a new elephant prosthetic leg factory. 

To encourage elephant owners to bring their elephants to the hospital rather than tough it out in the field, FAE offers to treat elephants for free and provide room and board for their mahouts, the elephant’s personal handlers, at no cost to them for as long as it takes to restore the elephants to health. Some elephants, like Mosha and Motala who have received artificial legs, can no longer work and have become permanent residents.

As you can imagine, the cost of running the hospital, having experts on-staff to provide immediate care for elephants arriving at all hours of the day and night, and the medications needed to treat sometimes critical conditions is substantial. As a registered Thai foundation, the FAE hospital is a non-government organization funded totally by donations from caring and generous supporters worldwide. 

The need is great. Since 1993, Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital has treated over 4,000 elephants and you never know when the next emergency case will show up. Recently, a five year old male was brought in with multiple stab wounds to his trunk. What would have become of this little guy if there was no hospital to care for him? How would he have fared out in the forrest with no treatment?

Please join us in helping to fund the medical mission of Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital. Your donation of $10 or more to this fundraiser will help founder Soraida Salwala and her dedicated staff obtain the equipment and supplies they need treat every elephant who shows up for help. Will you please be a supporter right now? The next medical emergency could happen any time and you’ll be making sure each elephant gets the best care possible. Thank you so much for your help.
