There are possibly not so many reasons to speak about charity and about the necessity of offering support to those in need in an ideal society. But in the conditions in which we live, it is very important to do good deeds, to help the persons who need support, said Maria Marinuță, administrator of the public association International Women’s Club of Moldova, which each year coordinates the participation of embassies and representative offices of international organizations at the International Charity Bazaar that is staged close to Christmas, IPN reports.
The 24th edition of the International Charity Bazaar was held on December 4 in the epoch building of the National Museum of History of Moldova. “We wanted this edition to be special and devoted it to children so as to raise funds for purchasing ophthalmic equipment needed by the Children’s Clinical Hospital “Emilian Coțaga”,” Maria Marinuța stated for Vocea Basarabiei radio station.
“It is such a nice atmosphere and we, those from the Embassy of Japan, brought a number of items that were taken away immediately after we opened our small shop,” the Ambassador of Japan to Moldova Yoshihiro Katayama told PRO TV channel.
“We hope we can collect money for children of “Emilian Coțaga” Hospital and we will surely not forget about the Ukrainian children. We will make presents on the Feast of Saint Nicolas for them,” said the president of the International Women’s Club of Moldova Olesea Shevchenko, the wife of Ukraine’s Ambassador to Moldova.
The objects sold at the Bazaar included artisanal items made by employees of the embassies accredited to Moldova and produced in the participating states and articles provided by sponsors from Moldova. For the proceeds to be larger, the organizers on the platform #HaiPeSprijina posted a call, urging all the kindhearted people to donate money.
The event was held under the colors of Romania, Ukraine, the U.S., the Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, India, Poland, China, Georgia, Sweden, Japan, Lithuania, Latvia, the UK, Azerbaijan, Qatar, Austria, Bulgaria, Italy, the EU and, surely, the Republic of Moldova.
