An initiative which has helped DCWA raise funds for the last 33 years
The annual DCWA International Bazaar is our biggest fundraiser and has been a successful initiative for over 34 years. Stallholders include corporates, NGOs, small and home businesses and DCWA itself. The highlight of the fundraiser is hands-on participation from over 40 international embassies and High Commissions. The bazaar draws a footfall of over 8000 people and aims to be bigger every year.
The highly successful 33rd DCWA and Diplomatic Community International Bazaar was held on Feb 3rd, 2024 at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium from 11 AM to 9:00 PM. There were international cuisines, stunning buys, raffles, gifts, and games. And it was all for charity.
The Fund Raisers in times of the Pandemic
Due to the conditions caused by Covid, DCWA was unable to hold its annual fundraiser, the International Bazaar. This year, starting October, we had a series of mini bazaars and events where covid protocols could be followed.
The Team of Madam Beatrice from Brazil, Madam Patricia from Chile, and the DCWA’s Bazaar Committee, organized these events and a mini bazaar with the assistance of Mr. Ashish Saraf, Honorary Consul for the Bahamas and some countries, like Kazakhstan, Norway, Azerbaijan, Dominican Republic. This gave visitors and donors the opportunity to continue their support towards DCWA’s charitable causes.
The festive mood continued in November when the Brazil home provided unmatched hospitality for fund raising events, as did Madam Karima from Morocco, where Portugal, Mexico, Libya, Nigeria, Egypt & Ukraine, participated in the ‘Winter Souk’ and other fund-raising events.
