Kenyan farmer delivers water to drought-hit wildlife

Wild animals are also bearing the brunt of prevailing dry weather in East Africa.

A young Kenyan farmer has however embarked on a mission to deliver water to some of the country’s drought-stricken wildlife.

Patrick Mwalua drives over 70 kilometers several times a week, to deliver water to Tsavo National Park – where climate change and human activities are blamed for the prolonged dry spell.

Patrick’s charitable cause has attracted well wishers around the world, enabling him to raise nearly $200,000 in the course of six months.

According to authorities, water levels in the park – which borders Tanzania – have alarmingly dropped, putting the wildlife at risk of starvation.
