IN the spirit of the festive season, South African Airways (SAA) has demonstrated unusual corporate social responsibility by bringing smiles to the faces of more than 70 Arrows of God Orphanage kids in Lagos treating the kids to an exclusive movie viewing at the Silverbird Cinemas in Lagos in addition to loads of gifts for each kid and the entire orphanage.The orphanage kids watched and enjoyed exclusively, 2016 Walt Disney blockbuster animated adventure movie, ‘Moana’ – a story about a spirited teenager who sails out on a mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest.
During her journey, Moana meets the once mighty demigod Maui, and together they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.
The kids enjoyed the movie in company of assorted snacks and drinks provided by South African Airways.
Earlier, as the kids arrived the Silverbird Galleria, Kemi Leke-Bamtefa, Head of Sales and Marketing at South African Airways alongside other colleagues presented the kids with a model of the new South African Airways A330-300 aircraft recently launched on the Lagos-Johannesburg route.
“We love Nigeria and we love all of you at Arrows of God Orphanage. Take this model of the new aircraft we recently introduced to Nigeria and keep all hopes alive for a prosperous future,” Kemi stated while handing over the model aircraft to the kids.
The kids who were visibly happy with the South African Airways gesture sang lots of Christmas songs and wishes the South Africa national carrier more prosperous years ahead.
At the end of the movie viewing, South African Airways presented the orphanage with many foodstuff items including a specially designed cake.
Mrs Jessica Otu, representative from the Arrows of God Orphanage thanked the airline for continuously putting smiles on the faces of the kids of the orphanage.
“From all of us at Arrows of God Orphanage, we want to say a big thank you to South African Airways who have made it an annual priority to always make us smile,” Otu explained.
