It was an OKM brochure of the water detector GeoSeeker in French that inspired the hydraulic engineer Makam Keitha in Mali and finally initiated the contact between the association "Aktion Pro Afrika" and OKM.
The newspaper LVZ accompanied the handover of the water detector GeoSeeker to the association and reported about it.
"Aktion Pro Afrika" knows that water is a valuable good in dry regions that is even more expensive than gold: Thus, the association supports villages in Mali with humanitarian aid campaigns to improve the water supply. To date, 25 small and large wells have been constructed in villages with 300 to 1500 inhabitants in order to improve living conditions in the Sahel zone.
OKM's managing directors Andreas Krauss and Ingolf Mueller decided immediately to support the association and to take over half of the costs of the water detector GeoSeeker. More effective than donations are fundamental improvements of living conditions in Africa - for example through well construction and thus ensuring the availability of clean drinking water.
By handing over the GeoSeeker to the association, current projects can be realized faster and more cost-effectively. The water detector saves time and money for test drillings that were necessary in the past. Thanks to the precise measurement results the waterfinder directly indicates water resources and helps to construct of further wells in the region.Story continued: More about the use of OKM GeoSeeker in Africa »
