How you can help

Our vital work with these majestic animals cannot be done without your support – THANK YOU for caring about the elephants.

STEF is run by volunteers, so we have almost no overheads, which means your contributions go directly to fund projects in Thailand to help elephants. We carefully monitor the projects we support to ensure that your generosity makes a real difference where it is most needed.


You can DONATE online now, either as a one-off or regular gift, or by becoming a Medicine Angel (see sidebar).

Your gift will make a real difference to the welfare of elephants in Southern Thailand. For example:

A one-off donation of £10 will feed an elephant at our hospital for two weeks with delicious, nutritious pineapple leaves and sugar cane, as well as important supplements, but £10 a month would ensure any elephant patient always had a good supply of food.

£30 will help to fund our mobile clinic for one month, enabling our dedicated vet to travel to elephants in need who cannot be transported to our veterinary centre at Khok Kloi. A regular donation of £30 a month would keep our mobile clinic on the road all year round.

£60 will help to pay the salary of our vet for one month, ensuring top-notch medical care for our elephants. Better still, a regular donation of £60 per month would ensure that our vet can continue this vital work at all times.

Alternatively, you can give via the following methods:
