The Guy with Water Who Helps Africa’s Parched Wildlife

The biodiversity and ecosystems of the earth are being significantly changed by climate change. Two of the continents with the greatest impacts are Africa and Antarctica. It seems concerning that there hasn't been any rain in Kenya's Tsavo West National Park since June 2018. In this region, several animal species seem destined for extinction. On the other side, this kind-hearted parent chose to keep them alive.

The biodiversity and ecosystems of the earth are being significantly changed by climate change. Two of the continents with the greatest impacts are Africa and Antarctica. It seems concerning that there hasn’t been any rain in Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park since June 2018. In this region, several animal species seem destined for extinction. On the other side, this kind-hearted parent chose to keep them alive.

Every day, pea farmer Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua delivers truckloads of water to animals in need. And when they hear Patrick’s truck coming, animals swarm to him. He moves 3,000 gallons of water each day.

In June of last year, while visiting the Tsavo, “I discovered the waterholes were dry and animals were lingering around them looking pretty desperate,” Mwalua told Nairobi Wire. The absence of water has left the animals completely dependent on people. If we don’t help them, they’ll be gone.

Patrick is aware that “water is life,” and he asks that people join him in promoting this worthy cause. To raise money to assist him protect the animals, he set up a GoFundMe website. And his amazing act of charity wasn’t forgotten.

“Last night, I found 500 buffalo waiting at the water hole,” Mwalua said. When I got there, they could already smell the ocean. The buffalo approached us fairly closely and seemed quite interested in us. They started drinking while I was still standing there. They are overjoyed.

Three American women made the decision to lend him a hand. Cher Callaway, Tami Calliope, and Angie Brown are now supporting Patrick’s mission. They now have a variety of trucks, enabling them to provide water to more drought-stricken regions across the African savanna.

His commitment to the environment and his heritage, according to Callaway, is immeasurable. Even putting his life at danger to carry water during the night to a dry water hole

I have a lot of enthusiasm for wildlife because I was born here and raised in a natural environment, the hero said. “I choose to spread awareness about this so that children will be able to protect their animals as they grow up.”

It’s encouraging to know that there are still people that appreciate conservation and animal welfare. with such a devotion to and reverence for Mother Nature!
