HCM CITY — The Consular Club in HCM City will hold its 25th annual International Charity Bazaar on November 3 at Adora Center in Tân Bình District.

The bazaar will offer handicrafts, delicious food and other items from all around the world.

Visitors can join a raffle draw offering valuable prices like vouchers for deluxe resorts and hotels around Việt Nam, spa packages, and lunch or dinner vouchers at luxury restaurants in HCM City.

All proceeds from the event will be distributed to help those less fortunate in the community.

In 2017, the bazaar raised US$70,000 for 12 charity projects, including scholarships for children and teenagers, free ROP surgery for blindness in premature babies, and water filtration for shelters.

The Consular Club, which includes representatives from consulates in HCM City, was founded in 1994 and is a non-profit organisation that aims to improve the quality of life of disadvantaged people in southern Việt Nam. — VNS
