On Thursday, we welcomed our dear friend, chef and philanthropist, Maria Loi, who stopped by with delicious and nutritious lunch for our staff, from her Loi Estiatorio restaurant.

She was joined by award-winning documentary film maker, Joanna James, and her crew. They interviewed our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Shani Andre, for a new documentary series about Chef Maria’s philanthropic work.

And, as if providing our staff with lunch while they’re at work isn’t enough, she also brought them some raw pasta for them to take away cook at home.

Thank you, Chef Maria.
