With COVID-19’s arrival, tourists have vanished from Thailand along with crucial funds needed to support the health and welfare of elephants living under human care.
Sadly, for too many lactating mother elephants and their young babies who depend on a steady supply of mother's milk, malnutrition, life-threatening health conditions, and even starvation are an existential threat.
MEET TINY MEENA & MIRA—two of the 32 COVID-19 babies in need of your help!
>Born in March of 2020 during the pandemic, Meena’s growth is severely stunted due to inadequate nutrition. At one year old, he is the size of a 2-month old. His mother's milk is in short supply because her owner can no longer afford to purchase nutritious foods that support lactation. So Meena and his mom require special supplementation. Your donation will give Meena a second chance to grow up strong and live a normal life.
>Eight-month-old Mira, born with a crooked spine and special needs, requires a specialized diet to keep her healthy and growing. Yet her owner lacks the income to buy her the nutritious supplemental foods she desperately needs. Mira is not doing well and the risk of life-long physical issues is all too real for her.
Elephant Care Internationaland its partners** are working hand-in-hand with Thai veterinarians and the Thai Elephant Alliance to purchase and deliver life-saving food and supplements to Meena, Mira, their mothers, and 30 other hungry mom/baby pairs throughout Chiang Mai.
They all need your help today.... and we need your financial support! All donations will go directly to food and supplement purchases. Our work is 100% passion-powered (we take no salaries).
