Donations pour in to elephant foundation

An online plea for financial help by Friends of the Asian Elephant (FAE) has brought in 20 million baht in donations in the past few days, leaving its founder "speechless" with relief.

Soraida Salwala, the secretary-general of the foundation, revealed the news on her Facebook page, saying its Kasikornbank account balance had reached 21.33 million baht, compared with just 1.38 million last Monday.

The association still has to wait until Monday to update its balance at Siam Commercial Bank.
