Food for Rescued Baby Rhinos from Flood in Kaziranga #AssamFloods

Kaziranga National Park is flooded and its inhabitants are is severe danger. Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC) , which is run by Wildlife Trust of India has rescued 6 to 5 baby rhinos  and other rescue operations are ongoing. https://www.scoopwhoop.com/6-Baby-Rhinos-Have-Been-Rescued-From-The-Flooded-Kaziranga-National-Park-In-Assam/

I am working with a  local school Teacher, Mr Leekhnath Sarmah, who is valiantly working for rescue efforts are trying to provide in kind support to these rescued animals.

There are enough medicines but they need Lactogen 2 to feed the rhino calves daily in the next 5-10 days.

Each baby rhino needs about 7 packets of lactogen2 per day. Each packet is 400 gm and costs Rs 310.

10 days worth of lactogen2 for 5 rhinos cost Rs 108,500. Please contribute whatever you can but do it soon as help is needed most NOW! I will transfer all fund to Mr Leekhnath Sarmah, who is procuring lactogen2 and getting it delivered to Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation.
I  and Mr Lekhnath are raising these funds in our individual capacity to provide support to the baby animals for a limited period of time. 

Please note that Milaap is waiving off the platform fees for this cause.

Dear Supporters,

Thank You for all the support.

The funds raised will be used by the distributor (recommended by WTI) to purchase lactogen 2. Once the distributor shares the bills, we will share it on Milaap platform.

Thank you!

Dear all,

Till date we have raised Rs 76, 072 in 5 days with the support of 39 donors who have all chipped in to help animals recused in  Kaziranga with Lactogen 2. As of close of petition  on 24th July we have used Rs 18,600 of the raised funds to purchase 60 packets of Lactogen 2 (bills, pictures, delivery pictures attached).

In addition, I have used Rs 4960 of my personal funds to deliver 16 packets of Lactogen 2 (bills, pictures of delivery attached).

We are Rs 32,428 short of the targeted amount but we have decided to stop raising additional funds because upon conversation with WTI officials who run the CWRC in collaboration with the Forest Department, target for Lactogen 2 has been met because:
a) number of animals who need Lactogen 2 is lesser than original estimates.
b) other individuals and organizations have also reached out to them with Lactogen 2The remainder fund (after necessary deductions by Milaap, if any) will be transferred to the Lactogen 2 distributor (as per consultations with WTI officials on 24th July 2019) to ensure that the funds go for the Lactogen 2 of the rescued baby animals. I will update transaction id as well as confirmation details on the platform as and when that process is complete.

Thank you all for your support.
