Each Spring the Bazar International celebrates the paying of the charities with a Remise de chèques ceremony in which we hand over the cheque to our principal charity and several others.
This year the Institut des Sœurs Oblates Catéchistes, Petites Servantes des Pauvres from Benin was present to accept their cheque for 25.000 euros. All told, 600.000 euros was raised at this year’s Bazaar and will be distributed over 90 deserving charities.
Well done to all who came and supported the Bazaar this past year and well done to the over 1,000 volunteers who work tirelessly to make the Bazaar happen!
The Bazar International de Luxembourg has been a celebration of the diversity of cultures in Luxembourg for over 50 years and in the process has helped thousands of charities both locally and abroad.
At the 2014 Bazaar, 58 countries shared their traditional food, crafts and customs, and offered us the opportunity to explore new cultures without leaving the Grand Duchy.
The proceeds from the 2014 Bazaar will benefit 90 charitiy projects. That means that every euro you spent at the Bazaar will go to help someone less fortunate.
You win and they win!
If you weren’t able to make it to the Bazaar this year, of if you were and just want to relive the memories, here are a few photos from the weekend.
Our favourite videographer, Artur Leonardo Kurkowiak,
has been hard at work again.
Here’s his video of the 2014 Bazaar, a tour of the world!
