Every day this man drives hours in drought to provide water to thirsty wild animals.
Meet Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua, aka the water man, who delivers water to the wild animals in dry lands of Kenya.
He is a pea farmer in his local village who saw the dire effects that global warming is having on Kenya’s wildlife
“We aren’t really receiving rain the way we used to… So I started giving animals water…”
“Because I thought, ‘If I don’t do that, they will die'”
Mwalua spends a few hours driving every day to fill the dry watering holes with life-saving water
Whenever he shows up with a truck of 3,000 gallons of fresh water, the animals come and greet him
“There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans”
“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 wildlife inspired a few American women to set up a GoFundMe page for him
The man will continue caring for animals as much as he can.
You can support him in this great cause by funding him on his GoFundMe page.
