"Mosha, as a baby elephant, stepped on a landmine and lost her lower right leg. In need of urgent intensive care, she was rushed to the Friends of the Asian Elephant Hospital in Thailand . While visiting the hospital, Marc Spits met baby Mosha and was inspired to create Elephant Parade. At the hospital, doctors healed Mosha so that she could walk with a prosthetic leg. Today, Elephant could walk with a prosthetic leg. Today, Elephant Parade continues to support Friends of the Asian Elephant in Thailand so that Asian Elephant like Mosha can have a bright future. In her honor, a special Mosha elephant is created for each Elephant Parade exhibition held around the world."
