How my dream to climb the seven continental summits (Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Aconcagua, McKinley, Vinson, Everest, Kosciuszko) and Cho Oyu transformed into the quest to bring clean drinking water to those in need in the Northern Province of Uganda. In 2010 I set out to climb Everest from the north side and complete climbing the seven summits (climbing to the highest point 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 during my attempt to reach the 6th highest peak on the planet. During the time I was sick, I experienced what other people without clean drinking water experience on a regular basis. Upon my return home to Munich, I dedicated my climb of Everest to the water crisis and founded a 501(c)3 entity in the USA. I focused an entire year of my life to reaching the highest point on the planet and creating an all-volunteer organisation with the goal to provide clean drinking water to the people of northern Uganda. What was originally a personal goal turned into a quest to deliver clean drinking water to the thirsty millions of war-stricken northern Uganda. Through this story, the charity, Global H2O was born.
