Seoul International Women’s Association is hosting one of the longest running charity events once again this year. The group was formed back in 1962, by individual around a kitchen table with the goal of connecting back with their community and making a difference. Now with nearly 400 members with 40 different nationalities, SIWA is once again excited to bring the annual SIWA Bazaar, back into town. Hosted since the 1960’s, the bazaar is one of the largest international fundraising events in Seoul. Themed ‘Share Culture, Share Love, Share Life,’ more than 5,000 people are expected to visit the diplomatic community bazaar. Last year, more than 30 embassies along with women’s clubs, local businesses, sponsors and welfare organizations collaborated together to create on exotic experience. International products ranging from Russian matryoshka dolls, discounted imported wines to handmade Arabian carpets, a wide array of cultural artifacts will be available. In addition to the market, visitors will have a chance to win raffle prizes for stores, restaurants and spas. If there was a certain type of souvenir you forgot to buy during your last trip abroad, it might be a great idea to what treasures you can find at the SIWA Bazaar taking place on Monday November 14th (10am – 3pm). All proceeds generated will be donated to over 20 Korean charities including those of orphan children, homeless or disabled individuals and senior citizens.
