A baby leg prosthesis that will allow a child to walk costs $60,000. Today you can make sure that you do not have to buy it. The brutal, bloody war and the violation of all the Geneva Conventions by the Russian army are strewing our lands with mines, shells and bodies of children who are no longer destined to grow up.

Depending on the terrain, 1 trained drone operator can survey up to 1 km2 per day for mines and shells, surveying the same area by a team of sappers can take up to 1 week. The implementation of this project can speed up the work of sapper brigades by 4-7 times and significantly reduce the time for demining the territory of Ukraine. Before the full-scale invasion, the territories that today need to be cleared were inhabited by about 5,000,000 people, of whom more than 1,000,000 were children.
The work of drones and their operators will help to quickly clear the area where hostilities took place, this will save the lives and health of people who still remain in this area and will allow refugees to return to their homes. Inspection and demining of agricultural land will help, as early as next year, overcome food shortages and hunger in Countries that depend on wheat grown in Ukraine (Ukraine ranks 8th in the world in terms of the amount of exported grain).
