Los Angeles, CA, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO) (FSE: 3U8) (“Draganfly” or the “Company”), an award-winning, industry-leading drone solutions and systems developer, is pleased to announce that the Company will provide Revived Soldiers Ukraine (“RSU”) with five highly specialized Medical Response Drones using funds provided by DroneAid: Ukraine.
DroneAid: Ukraine is a non-profit North American campaign supporting RSU in its humanitarian aid operations by ensuring it has access to advanced unmanned aerial vehicles (“UAVs”) and crucial medical supplies and equipment.
DroneAid: Ukraine will help RSU acquire Draganfly’s Medical Response Drones, which are heavy-duty, multirotor UAVs capable of ensuring the timely delivery of temperature-sensitive medical supplies and life-saving equipment to dangerous and hard-to-reach areas.
Canadian business leader and philanthropist, Riaz Mamdani, is serving as the founding volunteer chair of DroneAid: Ukraine. As part of his commitment to the campaign and RSU, he donated a specialized set of Draganfly’s Medical Response Drones through his company Strategic Group.
“It is an honor to supply RSU with five specialized Medical Response Drones using funds raised through DroneAid: Ukraine,” Cameron Chell, CEO of Draganfly. “Across Ukraine, there is an urgent need for temperature-sensitive medical supplies and life-saving equipment. Our Medical Response Drones will help RSU safely provide aid to affected Ukrainians in dangerous and hard-to-reach areas.”
“My heart breaks at the devastation of Ukraine and desperation of its people,” said Riaz Mamdani, CEO of Strategic Group and Volunteer Chair of DroneAid: Ukraine. “The work of Mrs. Vashchuk Discipio and RSU, using Draganfly drones, gives hope and inspiration for a better tomorrow. When we learned that we could immediately save lives, we acted as fast as we could.”
“The people of Ukraine urgently need the world’s help,” said Iryna Vashchuk Discipio, President of RSU. “In addition to ambulances and cars, high-tech solutions like drones are crucial for saving lives. While we have acquired a small fleet, we need more as the crisis continues. Draganfly’s specialized drone systems will enable our crews on the ground to access hotspots and provide humanitarian aid. With the help of DroneAid: Ukraine and generous philanthropists like Riaz Mamdani, we are positioned to provide life-saving humanitarian aid.”
The latest order builds upon the initial request from Coldchain Delivery Systems, LLC for a combination of 10 North American-made Medical Response and Search and Rescue Drones for deployment with RSU. The total initial order size received by Draganfly (subject to conditions) is up to 200 units.
