Schonstedt On Display at the United Nations

(From the United Nation’s wall placard) “The Schonstedt Instrument Company of West Virginia approached DPKO in 2007 with the concept for a Humanitarian Demining Initiative linking the donation of a Schonstedt magnetic locator (such as the one here) for use in locating UXO to the sale of other Schonstedt products. That concept was expanded to individual donations with the direct purchase of locators for donation by a meeting of Quakers from southern New Jersey. Since its inception in 2007, the Initiative has donated over 250 locators in coordination with UNMAS on behalf of the UN Mine Action Team (UNMAT) to under-funded mine action programmes including Somalia, Nepal, Mauritania, Chad, Viet Nam, Laos, Tajikistan and Egypt.”
