Mwalua decided to deliver thousands of litres of water to the animals of the drought-stricken national park and shared the pictures of his work on Facebook. He said the delivery of water has been a 'non-stop mission' and joy for him. He also thanked those whose donations have helped him take the water to the thirsty animals.

Emergency declared in Russian archipelago for a bizarre reason

It's been two years since the man started his noble mission and he supplied 3,000 gallons of water four times a week to the drought-stricken animals. He was assisted by Nina Poletti, a Canadian friend, in bringing the water to the national park.

Mwalua now has his own foundation in Kenya and he eyes to end the prevailing drought conditions in the park.

"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," Mwalua was quoted as saying by The Dodo.

"I was born around here and grew up with wildlife and got a lot of passion about wildlife. I decided to bring awareness to this so when they grow up they can protect their wildlife."
