A synopsis:

In 2010, I set out to climb Everest from the north side and to complete climbing the 7 Summits (climbing to the summit of the highest peak of every continent). During my training in the Himalaya, I discovered the water crisis and it changed me.

It was then, in 2009, when I fell ill with dysentery on Cho Oyu, forcing me to turn back on my attempt to reach the 6th highest peak on the planet. During the time I was sick, I experienced what the people without clean water experience on a regular basis.

Upon return to my home in Munich, I dedicated my climb of Everest to the water crisis, and founded a 501c3 entity in the USA. I focused an entire year of my life on reaching the highest point on the planet and creating an all-volunteer organisation with the goal to provide clean drinking water to the people in Northern Uganda.

What was originally a personal goal became a quest to deliver clean drinking water to the thirsty millions in war-stricken Northern Uganda. Through this story, the charity, Global H2O was born. (
