- Kindness is like a spark from a match that creates a forest fire and sometimes even a friendly smile can save life
- In the spirit of kindness, a KWS ranger took it upon himself to carry a disabled girl to the top of Aberdare ranges to view the waterfall
- She had been left behind by her attendants and teachers as they could not carry her uphill
One thing people overlook far too much is the simple yet effective act of kindness by men in uniform.
In this cold world overtaken by selfishness and greed, there is a desperate need for those little acts of care by such men.
That cannot have been captured better than a Kenya Wildlife Service ranger who was seen taking the Utumishi kwa Wote (Service to All) mantra in pride and stride.

In a Facebook post by Anyama wa Anyama and seen by Briefly.co.za, the ranger shows compassion to a disabled student, and he turned her day completely around.
Philip Wesa offered to carry Deborah Nyaboke on his back to the top of Aberdare ranges in order for her to view Chania Falls. Anyama wrote:
KWS Ranger Philip Wesa is one service man amongst many. He sacrificed to carry a disabled Deborah Nyaboke on his back in a hilly Aberdare National park in effort to make her view the Chania Falls.

Deborah, with her fellow students and teachers from Joyland special school in Kisumu were on a tour of the ranges, when she was left in the school van because she could not climb the hill on her own. Anyama added:
Nyaboke had been left in the vehicle by her teachers and attendants as they ascended the Aberdare since she couldn't climb on her own and only left to receive the information from her colleagues.
Wesa touched, decided to go back to the vehicle, clutched his gun then hoisted the poor Deborah on his back.
He ensured she joined her colleagues at the park and her dream was realized. What a man!
