Over three decades now, the Annual International Bazaar has been held at the Palais des Nations, and has become one of the biggest events in Geneva.
ISIL UZUMCU, CHAIRWOMAN
Every year the Bazaar attracts thousands of
visitors from the UN community, people of
Geneva and other neighbouring Swiss and
French towns. As we approach the month of
November, our customary visitors are already
showing signs of impatience.
Yes, you guessed right, we are ready to announce that The 2007 Bazaar will take place on 20th November at its traditional venue, the Palais des Nations.
The preparations are shaping up well. The lottery is rich in prizes thanks to donations by missions, private companies, hotels, airlines and generous individuals. I am delighted to announce that the biggest prize is a brand new Twingo. The lottery tickets have already been put on sale.
The Bazaar Committee is trying hard to accommodate a large number of applications for national stalls. You can be sure that articles you may wish to buy have been carefully selected back in home countries. This year you will also find the richest variety of food at the restaurant counters.
All the work that goes into this Bazaar has one common humanitarian aim : to help children in need through carefully selected projects to be funded with the earnings of this event. Millions of children in the world are deprived of basic human needs. Those in regions of conflict, famine, poverty and disease are the most vulnerable. It is uplifting to think that we can reach some of them with a helping hand.
This is a joint endeavour carried out in a spirit of cooperation and solidarity.
I warmly invite you all to join us on 20 November !
