We Donated to Udawalawe Elephant Orphanage with your help
It was a sunny day when we arrived at the Udawalawe Elephant Orphanage for a donation of Milk powder packets recommended for baby elephants that are kept here. There are around 45 elephants kept under the protection of wildlife authorities and the orphanage officials. Young elephants that live here are mostly the ones that don’t have a herd or those who are too young to join a new herd. Most of these elephants are kept here till they grow up to join a new herd. This is very important as many elephants do not get the natural protection even inside a herd as many elephant parents are completely occupied.
As a third world nation that requires a lot of aid from the foreign countries, Sri Lanka still spends a lot on keeping these giants safe and well fed. Maintaining these parks cost a lot and we were happy that the first donation with limited help was able to get enough milk packets for a one entire milk meal. They feed these young and baby elephants with milk every three hours and some elephants require more.
We took 35 packets of 400-gram milk powder recommended for baby elephants. We had three people donate to help us with the very first donation, and this would pave away to give more and more in the future. Would you like to join us with contributions in the near future?
You can directly donate to our campaign here that we will use it to purchase those supplies mentioned above. It is important to seek help from all the elephant lovers around the world as it is costly to maintain funds through government funding, ticket sales alone.
We humbly invite you to join us with a journey full of love and help to our treasured wild elephants in the paradise island of Sri Lanka.
