Background history: For six decades, Nina would drag herself through the narrow and littered streets of Uttar Pradesh, decked in heavy adornments at wedding ceremonies. The noisy orchestra and overjoyed attendees were oblivious to the immense discomfort that Nina was facing, with no vision and rapidly deteriorating health. She needed immediate medical intervention and was transferred to the Wildlife SOS Elephant Hospital for long-term medical care and treatment. The veterinary team has organised a specialised treatment and geriatric care plan for Nina to help her in her journey forward. | READ MORE ABOUT NINA
