Jakarta (VNA) – The Women’s International Club (WIC) Jakarta hosted the 50th WIC bazaar in Indonesia’s capital on November 15 and 16, aiming to raise funds for charitable activities.

Themed “Unity in Diversity”, this year’s event saw nearly 60 booths from embassies in Indonesia and over 200 of local enterprises.

The Vietnamese Embassy’s booth introduced traditional goods such as lacquer products, pottery statues, jewellery and coffee.

The organising board said that 40 percent of the profits will go to 15 humanitarian projects, including presenting learning tools for schools dedicated to poor and homeless children and orphans, upgrading infrastructure in care centres for the elderly and people with mental disorders.

Established in 1950 by women of four different nationalities – India, Indonesia, the UK and the US – the club has become a gathering place for women from foreign embassies in Indonesia.

It regularly holds humanitarian activities to assist people with disabilities, the elderly, street children, orphans and disadvantaged students in Indonesia.-VNA
