Our non-profit’s international mission is critical because no one should have to live in fear of their next step.
Tip of the Spear Landmine Removal was established 22 October 2022. This vision came to life after Founder Ryan Hendrickson traveled to Ukraine in March 2022 only weeks after the Russian invasion. During his humanitarian aid mission Ryan saw the ugly aspect of war he was very familiar with from the multiple deployments to Afghanistan as a US Army Special Forces Green Beret. He saw a danger that continues to maim and kill years after its intended purpose is served: landmines and explosive hazards. Before leaving Ukraine in May 2022 and returning to his home in Florida, Ryan made a promise that he would return to Ukraine and help remove these explosive devices causing so many injuries and deaths. In August Ryan returned and spent the month removing landmines in Eastern Ukraine. In October Tip of the Spear Landmine Removal was born and is now a 501C3 Nonprofit Landmine Removal organization capable of working in any country worldwide that requests assistance.
