The charity bazaar, which was organised by the International Women’s Club at the Belgrade Fair for the 17th time, gathered more than two and a half thousand visitors.

At this year’s Bazar, which is the main fundraising event organised by the International Women’s Club for the integration of marginalised groups and the financing of projects for them, more than 32,000 euros have been collected through the sale of products and individual donations.

The products from 32 participating countries and numerous organisations were exhibited at the Bazaar. Over the past month, the International Women’s Club has announced a competition for the financial assistance raised during the Charity Bazaar. This year intends to provide support to those most in need (children, the elderly, victims of violence, rural areas, people with special needs) through projects aimed at preserving cultural heritage, as well as to engage companies and embassies to participate and be beneficiaries.

The competition for the allocation of funds lasts until the end of the year, with the participation of non-governmental and non-profit organisations, schools and academies, professional and amateur art associations, local cultural and voluntary organisations, as well as those engaged in organising various types of courses. In this year of European cultural heritage, cultural projects will be selected and marginalised groups for end users.

“This year’s Charity Bazaar was in an optimistic mood. The impression was good, and all the items from the stands were sold. The artistic program that followed the whole bazaar was a diversion and attracted numerous audiences. Serbian actresses Tanja Bošković, who opened the bazaar and Nevena Šarčević as the host, contributed to this. The International Women’s Club is very pleased with this year’s Bazaar: it managed to collect almost the same amount of money as last year, and from less active participants and more expenses around the organization,” said the President of the International Women’s Club, Milica Lundin, the wife of Swedish ambassador in Belgrade.

In addition to selling products and individual cash donations, a unique lottery with valuable prizes is organised at the Bazaar. Revenue from the lottery also goes to the fund charitable foundation.

The International Women’s Club operates as a non-profit organisation and brings together diplomats and businesspeople from 40 countries, temporarily or permanently resident in Serbia, to promote cultural dialogue, goodwill, solidarity and understanding. With the help of the local members of the Club, IWC members operate as volunteers with the aim of animating companies and embassies through donations by the merchandise that will be sold at the bazaar in this humanitarian campaign and simultaneously present their countries to Belgrade.
