In 2021, SFA Group donated Three AquaHome Systems in Cambodia

March 2021 -

"Remote villages in Siem Reap, Cambodia have no electricity or clean water source. In addition, the laterite roads make transportation difficult especially during the rainy season.

This solution brings clean water and lighting into homes for the first time and is accompanied by Planet Water's hygiene education program to help improve the living conditions of the families.

""We always suffer from diarrhea and skin rashes because we have no clean water for drinking and hand-washing. My children are thin and unhealthy and often miss school because they are ill. With the Aqua-Home, they will now have a better chance to be healthy and to perform better in school."" Ly Leat, Father of three

Saniflo Pumps Help Nonprofit “Shower Love” on the Homeless

February 2019 -

Many homeless individuals struggle to improve their lives due to limited personal hygiene, which can hamper their confidence and the impressions they make on others, such as potential employers. Showers are taken for granted by those with regular access. For those without, they can be a rare privilege. Saniflo donated two Sanibest Pro units to the humanitarian project, which were distributed by Ferguson. Unlike standard macerators, the Sanibest Pro comes equipped with a heavy-duty grinder that can easily handle the accidental flushing of sanitary articles, such as feminine products, baby wipes, dental floss, condoms, etc. The pump discharges waste up to 25 vertical feet and/or 150 horizontal feet. “We chose the heavy-duty grinders to ensure we could process anything the clientele happens to throw down the drain,” explains Gifford.

A “leap of faith” taken, to aid local homeless by offering free showers!

June 2019 -

HONOLULU — Danica Fong-Shoji and her husband Craig Shoji count themselves as “just regular people.” But they routinely do something quite extraordinary — not just once in a while, but several times a month — by way of caring for the less fortunate in their community. Comforts of Home’s engineering team equipped the trailer two “conventional” bathrooms that rely on simple gravity to drain black and gray water from their sinks, showers and toilets into a 400-gallon storage tank attached beneath the trailer. The third shower room is ADA-compliant and features a ramp for wheelchair accessibility. As a result, “the toilet and the shower sit at a lower level than the waste tank” beneath the vehicle, according to Comforts of Home general manager Aaron Ward. As a consequence, waste must be pumped up to the storage tank. To perform that task, Comforts of Home installed a Sanibest Pro grinder system from Saniflo USA. The company uses the Sanibest Pro for all its handicap-accessible trailers, says Ward, “because it’s a heavy-duty grinder system, able to handle any kind of waste, including sanitary products accidentally dropped into the toilet bowl. We have installed hundreds of the Sanibest Pro systems, and we are extremely happy using them for our trailers. They work incredibly well. Not only have they saved us time on installation, but — most important of all — they also help ensure our customers have the best experience with our trailers.” Learn more by clicking here.
