World Vision is a charity that aims to help the poorest of the poor in building communities that are self-sufficient and sustainable. My travels that have taken me to the highest mountains in the world have also taken me through some of the poorest regions, and with this climb I am hoping to do my part to give back to the people that need it most. Climbing at high altitudes involves suffering and sacrifices that only other mountaineers can relate to, but it is something that makes me appreciate all the things I have in my daily life that I take for granted. The things we live without while on expeditions some people live without all their lives, with no return date to look forward to like me.
