Lighter Helmets for Deminers

Part of the reason for filming with the Ukrainian Emergency Services Firefighters and Deminers was to create content that they could use when trying to raise funds for needed gear. With highlights reels taken from a larger documentary objective, I think I've done that... but I'd like to do better. 

For the 5,000 Emergency Services workers who are carrying out demining operations in the civilian areas of Ukraine, they will be clearing landmines, boobytraps and unexploded 
ordnance for the rest of their lives. Day in and day out they will be in harms way, in heavy protective gear which causes back problems, neck and shoulder issues, headaches and fatigue. 

When I returned to the United States, I reached out to politicians and manufacturers of lighter weight ballistic helmets, such as Team Wendy, and asked for cooperation in getting aid to these Ukraine heroes. My efforts did not bear fruit... but I will keep trying.
If you'd like to assist, let's chat.
