Every Day This Man Drives Hours In Drought To Provide Water To Thirsty Animals

-

Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua, aka the water man, is a special type of person. He is passionate about the world around him and a true animal hero. Every day he delivers water to the wild animals in the arid, dry lands of Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park.

The incredible man, a pea farmer in his local village, started his water giving mission after seeing the terrible effects that climate change is having on Kenya’s land.

“We aren’t really receiving rain the way we used to,” he says. “So I started giving animals water because I thought, ‘If I don’t do that, they will die.’”

For hours every day, Mwalua drives to the out-lands to fill the dry watering holes with life-saving water. As soon as he shows up with a truck of 3,000 gallons of fresh water, the elephants, buffalo, antelope and zebras come galloping in to greet him.

Mwalua says:

“There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans. If we don’t help them, they will die.”

“Last night, I found 500 buffalo waiting at the water hole. When I arrived they could smell the water… They started drinking water while I was standing there. They get so excited.”

Mwalua’s passion for his local wildlife has inspired a few good souls to set up a GoFundMe page for him. The man promises to continue caring for animals as much as he can.
