“The experience [visiting the DSWT] was both joyful and humbling," Nyong’o says. "Most of the baby elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust had been orphaned due to poaching. The tragedy and loss they suffered did not escape me.

One of our favourite pictures is of all the orphans in their brightly coloured blankets traipsing home after a day out in the park.

The people that work at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, have extraordinary dedication to orphaned elephants and rhinos!  Many of these orphans have been  traumatized, after watching their parents killed. When they arrive, each orphan gets caretakers that stay with them 24/7, including sleeping with them. The loving keepers become substitute "parents", giving the babies the best possible chance of survival, and good mental health.
