The story of how Wilde’s dream to climb the seven summits transformed into providing clean drinking water to the people of northern Uganda. In 2009, while training for the seven summits, he fell ill with dysentery on Cho Oyu, forcing him to turn back on his attempt to reach the 6th highest peak on the planet. During the time he was sick, he encountered what most people without clean water experience on a regular basis. Upon returning home to Munich, he dedicated his 2010 climb of Everest to the water crisis and founded a 501(c)3 entity in the USA. Wilde focused an entire year on reaching the highest point on the planet and creating an all-volunteer organization with the goal to provide clean drinking water. What was originally a personal goal became a quest to deliver clean water to the thirsty millions in war-stricken northern Uganda. Through this story, the charity, Global H2O, was born.
