Did you know we also known as Drones Sans Frontières? DSF is our French name, and is a homage to our friends Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and the wider "Without Borders" civil society family. Both the names Drones Without Borders™ and Drones Sans Frontières™ are our Trade Marks, and cannot be used without our permission. We also have the website www.dronessansfrontieres.org #droneswithoutborders #drones4humanity #dronessansfrontieres
Drones are often thought of as tools of war, but there is a growing recognition they can be used to serve humanity. Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and UNICEF have used drones to assess damage and find survivors in disaster regions too rugged or dangerous for human search parties. Authorities dispatched drones after Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines to monitor survivors and find people washed out to sea. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) uses drones to prevent poaching in Namibia.
