In Rwanda, His Drones Are Saving Lives
Instead of dropping bombs drones are delivering blood

Follow by Email
One of the world's first drone delivery services is all the way in rural Rwanda, where 27 year-old Abdoul Salam Nizeyimana earns a living by launching and retrieving self-flying planes. Nizeyimana was drawn to not only the technology of his employer Zipline but also its mission: to deliver blood to remote hospitals, helping doctors save their patients' lives. Like many in Rwanda, Nizeyimana survived a harrowing tragedy to get to where he is today. This is the third episode of "Next Jobs," a series about careers of the future hosted by Bloomberg Technology's Aki Ito. Host, Producer: Aki Ito Camera: Gloria Kurnik Producers: Leila Hussain and David Nicholson Editors: Alan Jeffries and Victoria Daniell Writers: Aki Ito and Alan Jeffries Fixer: Eric Kabera
