Das glückliche Ende eines elenden Lebens

Dear Astrid,

We think the most striking transformation you helped us bring about in 2017 involved Suraj. When our team arrived to rescue him, we found an emaciated elephant chained up in a small, depressing temple room. Suraj was malnourished, dehydrated, and simply wasting away as a captive spectacle.

 

But today Suraj is free to take long walks in the countryside. He's enjoying the company of other elephants, and splashing around the water pool. The contrast between then and now pulls at our hearts. At one time this majestic elephant looked so defeated and so crushed, but those days are long gone.

 

 

We know of many other elephants in India who need caring people to step up and give them better lives.
