In an extraordinary spirit of Christmas did the MAIA Luxury Resort and Zil Air team up with the Rotary Club of Victoria to fly Santa Claus to over 40 children of the Presidents Village, assembled near the MAIA helipad. Corporate Seychelles has for long made special efforts, and been quite creative in the past, when it came to giving orphans and the disadvantaged in society the spirit of Christmas but by any standards, flying in Santa Claus with presents and all was surely the icing on the cake.
And cake too was distributed to all the kids, after they each got their present from Santa, after he emerged from the helicopter after first circling overhead and waving at the assembled children and their minders. That giant Christmas cake was baked by the MAIAs pastry chefs and proved to be a winner with everyone. The absolute highlight though must have been the ride in the sky when those kids willing to go on board the helicopter had the opportunity to fly a round or two over the helipad, something they will surely never forget, first Santa dropping in from the skies and then they themselves having a flight too.
Well done to the MAIA, Zil Air and the Seychelles Rotary Club for their generosity to make this dream become a reality.
