Saniflo North America, a division of Group SFA, a world leader in above-the-floor macerating and grinding toilets and drain pumps, has announced a partnership with Plumbers Without Borders (PWB) as a Mission Supporter Sponsor. The ultimate goal is to support the group's mission to connect volunteer plumbers and industry resources with organizations working to increase access to safe water and sanitation worldwide.
“We have been gratified and encouraged by our industry’s generosity, and we’re excited and proud to be aligned with SFA Saniflo,” said Domenico DiGregorio, president of PWB.
DiGregorio added that Plumbers Without Borders is currently coordinating with partner organizations involved in installing rainwater harvesting systems, water filtration and above ground water tank storage, in addition to building pit latrines and other hygiene improving systems in several villages in Africa. “I was heartened to see SFA Saniflo’s story of a donation equivalent to three Planet Water filtration systems in Cambodia,” he said.
As a Mission Supporter Sponsor, Saniflo North America will support the philanthropic work of PWB with product donations and technical support on a case-by-case basis. Based on past projects, the organization predicts one or two projects that could benefit from Saniflo’s innovative, above-floor plumbing solutions.
“We look forward to partnering with Plumbers Without Borders on NGO projects that could potentially benefit from Saniflo’s above-floor macerators, grinders and drain pumps,” said Regis Saragosti, CEO of SFA Saniflo North America. “Plumbers Without Borders has done so much to advance community empowerment and improve sanitation around the world, and we are proud to be a part of that mission.”
