When Mosha the elephant was two years old, she suffered a horrific injury: The poor creature stepped on a land mine at the Thai-Burmese border. This part of the world is actually rife with land mines, a result of decades of political unrest and guerrilla warfare in the region. Unfortunately, it's not just humans who get caught up in land mine related violence: Mosha lost her leg to the accident, and could have lost the chance to have a normal life.
After two years of living with her injury and disability, Mosha met a doctor who would change everything. His name is Dr. Therdchai Jivacate, and he's a surgeon, inventor, and prosthetics expert who made it his mission to help Mosha out.
