Patrick Meier, Director of Social Computing at the Qatar Computing Research Institute, and a pioneer behind the Humanitarian UAV movement, shared this video with the UAE Drones for Good Award of his recent work in Dubai.

"On the 25th of April, Nepal was hit by the worst earthquake the small, mountainous country had ever seen," he says. "Leaving thousands dead and hundreds of thousands displaced, the Ghorka Earthquake as it would become known, uprooted not only cities and villages, but homes and families that had existed in the mountains for centuries. So what could we do to help? Well, an expert team got to work on a plan that drew together some of the best and brightest of the UAV industry for a life-changing experience.
