Help Us Buy The Next Backup Power System
August 15, 2017

The storms are getting worse, not better, as climate change churns the atmosphere around the world. Thailand is no exception. Recent deluges See More

THE STORY:

Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital needs your help right now to make sure that sick and injured elephants can get the treatment they desperately need, night or day, rain or shine. 

Violent storms often knock out utility power as they rage through northern Thailand. That leaves FAE hospital, its patients and staff in the dark. It is pretty difficult to administer medication and veterinarian care in the middle of the night under only the beam of a flashlight…  although that’s exactly what the staff had to do during a recent emergency. Even daytime outages can seriously hamper normal office and elephant care activities.

We’re going to keep the lights, fans, and other equipment on with backup power from the sun. A stand-alone package of solar panel, charge regulator, storage battery and power inverter is reasonably priced, supplied locally, and can be quickly installed in each of the buildings. The systems are silent, don’t emit noxious fumes and will keep running during extended outages. 

 Will you contribute something right now to fund this important effort? As an elephant hospital supporter, your kindness is most appreciated. Thank you.

Please note that Friends of the Asian Elephant is a registered charity in Thailand, but not the United States. As such, consider your contribution to be a gift to FAE, and not a deductible charitable donation.
