July 7, 2010– Soraida Salwala, the founder of the Friends of the Asian Elephant (FAE) Elephant Hospital, wrote to share that the Prostheses Foundation had returned to inspect and adjust the prostheses on two elephant landmine survivors, Mosha and Motala, both featured in The Eyes of Thailand documentary. Below are some photos, taken July 1-2, 2010.

The Prostheses Foundation adjusts the alignment of Mosha's prosthetic limb.

Mosha, the four-year old elephant landmine survivor at FAE's Elephant Hospital, tries on the prosthesis.

The Prostheses Foundation makes more adjustments to Mosha's prosthesis.

A brand new prosthesis for Mosha!

And now it’s Motala’s turn:

The Prostheses Foundation adjusts the padding that will go inside Motala's prosthesis to protect her amputated stump.

The Prostheses Foundation straps on Motala's prosthesis.

Now the two girls meet up for leisurely stroll–wearing their matching prostheses–around the ground at FAE’s Elephant Hospital.

Mosha and Motala greet each other, wearing their new prostheses.
