The Christian German School Chiang Mai (CDSC) raised 100,000 baht from the “Let’s Save the Elephants” donation campaign and handed over the donation to Save Elephants Foundation on the 14th of June, 2021.
As the CDSC reports, the school community continues to show that they do not forget those who need help in difficult times. “It’s nice that the support is given not only to the local community, but also to animals and their keepers that are equally hard hit by the pandemic.” In addition, the school sees an important educational contribution in this sort of fundraising campaign, which aims at raising students’ social awareness.
The donation handed over to the Save Elephant Foundation will be used to buy food and provide medical care for the giant animals at the Elephant Nature Park in Mae Taeng, Chiang Mai.
The Save Elephant Foundation has been involved in protecting Asian elephants since the 1990s, saving them from exploitation and abuse. It now gives homes to more than 4,000 animals, including over 100 elephants rescued from abusive situations such as elephant riding and the circus.
The donation campaign from CDSC is now over but you can still support the animals via online donation here. https://jointrunksup.org/foodbank.
