UPS helps in Rwanda – level 1

17-05-2016 07:00

UPS is a delivery company. It works on a project in Rwanda. This project can help people. It delivers blood. Drones deliver the blood. Delivery by drone is 20 times faster than by motorcycle.

Many mothers bleed after having their babies. They need blood. Children in Rwanda are ill. They need blood, too. This project can help them.

UPS does this to help people. UPS does this to learn more about drones. It can study drone delivery.

Difficult words: delivery company (a company or a business which delivers things – moves them somewhere), blood (the red liquid inside the body), bleed (when blood gets out of your body), need (if you need something, it is very good to have it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
