Online Fundraising – EVP Survival Fund 2021

Thanks to our awesome donors and supporters, we have somehow made it through 2020 during this ongoing of this global crisis. We are now looking to 2021 and thinking seriously about what we can do and how we can survive. A struggling economy means there is again mounting pressure on our forests, communities and local elephant owners, meaning our help is needed more than ever. We must push forward and to do so we still need your help!

How can you help from home?

If you are already reading this, then you are heading in the right direction, and by providing financial support to not only the elephants that have retired at the EVP, but for the community whose land, livelihoods and support systems depend on them also, this is an immense help.

It is costing us roughly $15,000-18,000 USD per month to keep the sanctuary running, the elephants fed, mahouts paid and to support the community through this crisis. We have been offered $4000 USD per month critical relief funds from the amazing World Animal Protection, and we receive around $1000 per month from individual elephant sponsors (you guys all rock!) – but we still need to find the rest.

With your contribution, together we can continue to provide the highest quality of care for all the elephants at the EVP in ensuring that these turbulent times do not affect their day to day routine. We can also try to honor our long-standing commitment to the community, through our health care access program and livelihoods, but only if we secure enough funding to continue these programs.

Every single penny counts. So donate, send the link to your loved ones, friends and family and together let’s make a difference!

Sanctuary Wishlist

Running a project in the remote east of Cambodia sometimes limits the access to certain resources. There are also some things that are far outside our reach from general funds raised through the EVP.

Therefore we have created a wish list. Some things are small and you may be able to pack them in your suitcase if coming from overseas, (which would be an immense help). Others are a dream, but if you have the means and would like to fundraise and sponsor one of the bigger items that would make a big difference to the project and thus the elephants please contact

Elephant Medicines

There are many medicine supplies and small additions that can help our elephants and also human medical kits onsite. Items that would really help us along the way are :

  • We need iodine and lots of it. We use a 10L bottle for Sambo alone ever few weeks, for her foot soaks. Purchasing a 1L bottle of Iodine in Phnom Penh and donating it to us to help to treat elephant wounds and give foot baths would be an enormous help. Or if anyone works for a medical supply company that would like to sponsor this medicine in bulk, please let us know (Annually we use about 200L).
  • Vet Cream – 3 Action – Antibiotic, Anti-Inflammatory & Anesthetic – for example these medications – NeoSooth or  NeoCort – you may need to ask your vet to prescribe as a take away medicine for donation overseas.
  • Boxes of surgical gloves
  • First Aid Supplies (Packets of Plasters, Bandages, Gauze Pads, etc.)
  • Antibiotic cream, antiseptic cream, mosquito repellent, de-worming medication for cats and dogs.
  • Packets of 500 mg Paracetamol and Ibuprofen (we can buy this here but International brands are better quality.)

For the EVP Site

  • Hats, work clothing, rain jackets, work boots, gum boots, etc. (You can use while you are here and leave behind)
  • Thick work gloves
  • Electric torches (preferably rechargeable)
  • Tools of all shapes, kinds, and sizes

Elephant Medical Treatment & Training Areas

Elephant Clinic at EVP base camp – upgrades

  • We have received some funding over the years from generous donors, where we have continued to develop the centre. Things like gas cookers to heat the water, training fences and Sambos treatment area. This centre however is getting older and needs constant repairs.
  • We would also like to build some small treatment enclosures, for sick elephants that need to spend the night or longer close to the clinic.
  • We would like to build 2 more elephant medical treatment and positive reinforcement training areas within the forest areas. We have one close to base camp and would like 2 more in the bottom of the valley. This would make giving treatment to the elephants much easier and safer, especially the old guys and gals that might not like getting injections very much. Estimate cost for each mini training/treatment fence – $ 1000


Any working technology is always much appreciated as our work in the field eats these items. Rarely do we get funding for technology, but are super low on computers in the office, so any help goes a long way!

  • Basic Computer – Computers in any size or form are always needed for admin and for  documenting research, community projects or also to donate to other education programs in Mondulkiri – either desktops or laptops. If your company is refurbishing all their computers systems, maybe consider donating the old ones (1-3 yr old) and shipping them over for use by our NGO here or donations to other partners. Please contact for larger donations or to discuss corporate donations of equipment.
  • Pads/Tablets
  • Cameras
  • Cell Phones (1-3 years old)
  • Two Way Radios
  • Satellite Phones (with SIM)


Most of the project staff have always used their own motos. We would love to give some of the key staff project motos, which are newer and more reliable for ease of work and safety.

Head Mahout – $1200
Project Assistant Manager – $1200
Cook/kitchen staff – $1200
EVP run around moto – $1000

Solar Power for the EVP

We currently do not have a consistent green electricity supply at the EVP. We do run a generator for power 3 hours per night and when needed, but we would love to fit out the whole camp with solar. This would be more environmentally friendly, enabling us to have hot showers in the cold season and also so we don’t have to listen to that big smelly generator each night.

We have had an amazing couple that has raised enough to fit out the private bungalows already, which we are in the process of changing the grass roofing to solid roofs to accommodate the solar panels. However the quote for the full system for the main site and setup cost will be around $10,000, with a solar company in Cambodia that works with NGO’s. If you are interested in supporting all, or even part of this effort, then please drop us a line. 🙂
