When elephant Mosha was only seven months old, the worst happened. She stepped on a land mine and lost her right front leg. The pretty little elephant’s life seemed to be destroyed forever, and no one thought she’d be able to walk again.
But when a doctor named Therdchai Jivacate heard about the terrible tragedy that Mosha had gone through, he realized that he had to act.
Doctor Therdchai Jivacate is an orthopedic surgeon who rehabilitates injured elephants. And for a long time, he’s worked at the world’s first elephant hospital, located in Thailand. When he heard about Mosha’s situation, he didn’t hesitate for a second to intervene.
With the help of his team, Dr. Jivacate developed the world’s first artificial elephant leg. It’s a prosthesis that makes life easier for Mosha and has given her the ability to walk again. And as Mosha grows and gets older, Dr. Jivacate makes new prostheses for her.
Thanks to Dr. Jivacate and his team’s wonderful effort, Mosha has gotten her life back and is finally able to live a normal life again. Watch the video below to see more about Mosha and the kind-hearted Dr. Jivacate.
