Back to Orphans Next Orphan

Ndomot's Story

Today, the 26th November, 2003, on the day all Muslims break the fast of the Holy month of Ramadam, we welcomed another little 6 week old elephant into the Nursery from the same remote corner of Kenya that yielded Sunyei, orphaned under the same circumstances, having fallen into a well dug by tribesmen in a dry Northern sand lugga in a very arid part of the world. He comes from Ol Donyo Nyiro district, so he is a tough little dry country elephant, about 6 weeks old, and in good condition. Great credit goes to his rescuers, three Samburu tribesmen, obviously brothers, named Barin Leruso, Ltaisan Leruso and Kibatoi Leruso.
