Buy a Schonstedt, Save a life.

Now, those who wish to contribute demining tools directly to United Nations Mine Action partners in the world’s most devastated countries can do so. Businesses, individuals and nonprofit organizations such as church and school groups, trade associations and service clubs are invited to participate as follows:

  • Purchase for donation any number of Schonstedt GA-72Cd magnetic locators at list price, and Schonstedt will match your donation unit for unit
  • Schonstedt will ship the units directly to underserved countries according to UN priorities
  • Donations are made in the name of the donor (group or individual)
  • Donors will be recognized with ‘Thank You’ letters from
    • Schonstedt Instrument Company
    • The United Nations
    • The U.S. Department of State
    • The in-country recipient of the donation when possible
  • Public relations assistance will be provided on request at no cost

And, most importantly…

each donation represents an immediate and tangible contribution to humanitarian demining where it is most needed in the world… and where it would not otherwise be possible
