Table of Contents
Manila, Philippines — More and more people are becoming inspired and learning the art of giving and sharing hope to those who need it. The International Bazaar 2018 shares that notion and when you shop, the proceeds of the sales go to the respective beneficiaries of the sellers. The International Bazaar 2018 will be held this November 25, 2018, at the Philippine International Convention Center Forums 1, 2 and 3.
The 52nd International Bazaar is headed by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), life partners of the heads of the Mission, Diplomatic and Consular Corps and the International Bazaar Foundation (IBF).
The beneficiaries of last year’s bazaar are the women of Marawi, school, children, elderly, calamity victims and ‘scholars from indigent families’.
IBF also received donations from the spouses of the head of the non-profit organization. These donations were then given to Childhope Asia Philippines, Kalipay Negrense Foundation, Marillac Homes for abused women, Negrense Volunteers for Change Foundation, ICAN Foundation, Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation Phils. and Chosen Children Foundation.
IBF will build IBF Traditional Livelihood Center from the proceeds of this year’s sales. This will help the needy to learn different Filipino crafts like weaving, pottery, embroidery and woodcarving which can be a source of income for them.
Here’s what you’ll see at the bazaar
Items from Australia, China, European Union, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, Korea, Laos, New Zealand, Spain, and Switzerland will be displayed.
Local items such as handicrafts, piña fabric, textiles, local pieces of jewelry, supplements, oils, wines, and woven bags will be put on display by local sellers.
