The “Super Kids” a local charity group of primarily Chinese ex-pats and their children, bought food this week to needy elephants in Sattahip with their own savings.
First, a video of this story and the elephants can be seen here:
Yesterday, (August 22nd) Ms. Prichit Jaetapai from the ‘Super Girl’ charity team together with children from the ‘Super Kids’ visited the elephants at an elephant camp in Na Jomtien, Sattahip.
They gave free food and rice to mahouts (elephant trainers) and families with six trucks full of pineapple leaves weighing about 12 tons!
Ms. Prichit told The Pattaya news, “We know that at this time there is less visitors and tourists at the elephant camp. Both the mahouts and the elephants are suffering from the crisis too as they have less food and less attentions.”
Chonburi is currently a “maximum control” province with strict rules and restrictions that have mandated the closure of all tourist attractions, including elephant camps, and have brought domestic tourism to a complete halt. Other measures in effect currently are overnight curfews, closures of beaches, parks, and pools, as well as nearly every customer-facing business sector except for supermarkets and pharmacies.
“The Super girls are Chinese kids who used their own savings, in a total of 6,000 baht, to buy food for six elephants and mahouts.” Prichit explained.
“We think that this food will feed the elephants for about one week.” Prichit concluded.
The Super Kids have been active throughout Pattaya and Chonburi helping those in need during the current Covid-19 crisis, as you can see here:
