Gest impresionant făcut de un bărbat din Kenya. Detalii INCREDIBILE

In a land as parched as Kenya's Tsavo West National Park, no visitor arrives with more fanfare than the water man...That would be Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua. And when he rumbles down the dusty road bearing some 3,000 gallons of fresh water, the elephants, buffalo, antelope and zebras come running...They've come to know the water man by the rumble of his engine. And his lifesaving cargo. ''There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,'' Mwalua said,. ''If we don't help them, they will die.'' Mwalua fills the bone-dry watering holes in the region, driving for hours on end every day to haul water to where it's most desperately needed...The holes themselves, lined with concrete, often need cleaning ‚ÄE Mwalua blames it on buffalo droppings ‚ÄE and sometimes, he will just hose down an area of cracked earth for the grateful animals...''The buffalo roll in the mud so they suffocate the fleas and ticks,'' he says. Many animals don't even wait that long, fearlessly crowding the truck as Mwalua cranks the tap...''Last night, I found 500 buffalo waiting at the water hole,'' he says. ''When I arrived they could smell the water. The buffalo were so keen and coming close to us...''They started drinking water while I was standing there. They get so excited.'' Mwalua, who is a pea farmer in his local village, came up with the idea after seeing firsthand the grim toll climate change has taken in his native land. In the last year especially, he says, the area has seen precious little precipitation, leaving animals to die of thirst in these cracked lands...''We aren't really receiving rain the way we used to,'' he says. ''From last year, from June, there was no rain completely. So I started giving animals water because I thought, 'If I don't do that, they will die.''' Between road trips, Mwalua runs a conservation project called Tsavo Volunteers. The 41-year-old also visits local schools to talk to children about the wildlife that is their legacy...''I was

Gest impresionant al unui bărbat din Kenya. Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua parcurge zilnic kilometri cu propria mașină pentru a ajunge în zonele secetoase, unde le dă apă animalelor pentru ca acestea să nu moară, relatează thechive.com.

Fermierul Patrick s-a gândit să ajute animalele din câteva zone ce au devenit secetoase în zona unui Parc Național Tsavo West. El spune că în acea zonă nu a mai ploat din luna iunie a anului trecut, iar el face acest lucru pentru a evita o tragedie: “Nu mai plouă ca înainte. De anul trecut, din iunie, nu a mai plouat deloc. Așa că am început să le aduc animalelor apă, deoarece m-am gândit că dacă nu fac asta, vor muri”, a povestit Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua.

El conduce zilnic mai multe ore pentru a umple pârâurile secate cu apă. Când motorul cistenei lui începe să se audă în anumite zone, animalele aleargă pentru a-l întâmpina.

“Nu au deloc apă, așa că animalele depind de oameni”, a mai spus bărbatul. El a făcut acest gest  de câteva ori, iar acum animalele nu se mai tem de ei: “Seara trecută, am găsit 500 de bivoli cum așteptau lângă pârâu. (…) Au început să bea, lângă mine, erau vesele”, a mai adăugat bărbatul.
