When it comes to lending a hand to a furry friend in need, there is nothing an animal lover won’t do. We’ve seen people go above and beyond to help an injured pigeon, provide shelter for homeless animals, and even save pigs from a burning barn. And this story is no different.

Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua has made it his life goal to help animals in need and his actions definitely speak louder than words. At the Tsavo West National Park in Kenya, a drought sadly forced many animals to go without water, so, in an effort to help Patrick carried more than 3,000 gallons of water per day to the park to make sure all the giraffes, zebras, elephants and many more animals got water.

“I started giving animals water because I thought if I don’t, they will die,” said Patrick. What a hero!

Patrick is a farmer in his village and has seen the massive impact that climate change has had on this natural area and the animals who live there.

“We were accustomed to receiving the water from the rains, but that is not happening anymore. So I started giving animals water on my own,” stated Patrick.

Patrick drives for hours in the drought to fill the water tanks and bring it to the animals.

And the animals are certainly thankful! Patrick said that one time he found 500 buffalo waiting for the hose that provides them with water. As soon as it arrived, the animals were excited.

Thank you for your tireless efforts, Patrick!

This sweet story is a reminder that no matter how small the action, we can all do something to make the world a kinder place. Patrick’s passion fueled two American women to start a GoFundMe page to help cover the steep costs of bringing water into the park. If you would like to help Patrick’s efforts, you can donate here. And please share this post with your friends and family to show that there is still goodness in the world!

In my judgment, this man is a more fitting example of compassion in action than THE POPE in the Vatican. Why is it that animal activists and friends have to PETITION the Pope, plead to him for the animals?

Blessings to you Patrick for devoting time and effort to save thousands of animals who depend on water to survive. I will share so other people might help. We need more people like you in this world full of greed and disregard for life.

Thank you, Patrick. You should be helped. Animals are already aware they are going to have water. I find their behaviour really rewarding. God bless you, Patrick!.

Please give us an American source (credit cards) to use to send funds to help this endeavor. Perhaps British readers have a source already but other countries may also need help. This man is an extraordinary angel of mercy and should receive all the aid and support needed. He will go on to other benevolent endeavors if he can get that help now. Someone give him an international award ! Recognition of such merciful efforts is catching!
