Earlier this week, Richard Bistrong talked in a post about expats engaging with the local community as a way to understand the challenges and struggles of people who live nearby.
There are lots of ways to do that.
Take for example the International Women’s Club of Sofia.
The group funds more than 20 projects across Bulgaria, aimed at helping those who are most vulnerable.
They fund the projects mainly through their Annual Charity Bazaar.
This year’s event happens Sunday, December 4 from 9:00 to 19:00 at the Inter Expo Center in Sofia.
This is the IWC-Sofia’s 22nd Annual Charity Bazaar.
The event is “organized by volunteers and most funds are raised through generous donations made by companies, individuals and embassies,” the group says.
Money that’s raised by the event is allocated to charities across Bulgaria to help the underprivileged.
The one-day charity event allows more than 50 countries to showcase their handmade crafts, music, souvenirs, folklore, national cuisine, clothing and literature. There’s also plenty of food.
More information about ticket sales is here.
Here’s a wonderful 5-minute clip about the International Women’s Club of Sofia and some of the work it’s doing.
