*The Star Medical Clinic at BLES* - Can you help!

Post  Safari Maiden on Sun Apr 03, 2011 6:15 pm

The Star Medical Clinic at BLES

Since BLES was established in 2007, the dire need for a vetinariany clinic has been paramount.

Located in northern Thailand, there are only two elephant hospitals currently providing care for sick or injured elephants. Both these hospitals are, at a minimum, a six hour drive from BLES when transporting an elephant.

Despite the excellent treatment elephants receive at these facilities, local elephant owners feel unsupported and helpless if their elephant gets sick. Although elephant veterinarians make on site visits, their services are in great demand which often exceeds their availability. Owners wait for days before a veterinarian is available. Additionally, follow-up treatment is complicated by the scarcity of the doctor.

Often, the elephant is required to be transported to the hospital which is an expensive and dangerous effort for those involved. Trucks are unsafe, completely inadequate and can be hard to source. In recognition of this need, BLES proposes to establish a satellite and triage clinic to support the existing elephant hospitals. By providing diagnostic services, preliminary examinations and maintenance care, the Star Clinic will help to determine and prioritize treatment and transport.

Minor cases will be treated locally at the Star Clinic while serious cases requiring surgical and long-term treatment will be recommended to the hospitals. Local volunteers, veterinary students and a resident veterinarian who will work in concert with the hospital veterinarians will staff the Star Clinic.

The Star Clinic is named in recognition of BLES’s first born elephant who tragically died at the age of two and half years old during a thunderstorm in May 2010. Star exemplified our goals for all elephants with her cheeky sense of self who rejoiced in living a safe and protected life.

BLES is appealing to new and existing supporters for your help in establishing the funds to begin our work. We have the site secured but we need to raise xxx BHT for the construction of the entire facility. This includes labor and materials, medical equipment, site preparation, parking lots, and an endowment to maintain the facility. Naming opportunities such as a permanent “wall” of honor and memory designations will be announced in the future. This initiative is critical to the welfare of the elephants and animals of Thailand. We need your support – every animal has the right to be a star. Please help us by donating an amount of any size.

Estimated costs are in the region of £90,000.00.

The fundraising has started: Marleen Vanestra organised a Benefit Concert on 2nd April raising over 600 Euro and Anneke Van Cleef is cycling through Thailand in aid of the New Clinic in April 2012.

I dont blame you Lai, that was quite a disaster with the ERC and always being cautious is the right thing to do.

Anneke is doing a great thing to help raise funds toward the Star Medical Clinic at BLES. In 2012 she will be taking 9 months to cycle Thailand.

As a warm up in August 2011 she will be cycling 100K in Belgium. She has a justgiving page which will go straight to BLES as they are a registered charity and registered on Justgiving which this is linked to:

http://www.justgiving.com/BIKING-FOR-BLES

I know because I could not do this that I think she is mad. But then she is fit and healthy and has a case iron will to succeed. I wish that for her and will be keeping an eye on progress. I sincerely wish her good luck.
