Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park is rich in wildlife, however, the land has been left dry and hot due to lack of rain over the past few years.

Hundreds of animals have perished due to thirst and heat but there’s not much that the wildlife service is doing about it. But one man took matters into his own hands and he is determined to ensure that these wild animals are given enough drinking water to stay cool.

To help these animals, Mwalua rented a truck. Now, he drives for hours every single day to transport water to several areas in the national park.“Last night, I found 500 buffalo waiting at the water hole,” he said. “When I arrived they could smell the water. The buffalo were so keen and coming close to us.”

Everyday, Mwalua carries 3,000 gallons of water to fills the watering holes. He often finds the holes dirty with buffalo droppings which he cleans to ensure the animals get to drink fresh and clean water.

This is Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua.
