This part of the Bazaar represents the Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The stand is in two parts; one sells gift items which we think are typical of our respective countries and the other foods, also representative. We would like to give you an idea of what we offer, but we cannot list everything!

Welcome to the Scandinavian Stand 2017!

 

This year the Scandinavian stands nominated “Together for Better”, in the Dominican Republic, for the 2017 bazaar charity list. “Together for Better” is a small charity in Degerberga, Sweden, founded by the Swedish Journalist Ebba Lövenskiold in 2013. The charity engages in children´s right to education. “Together for Better” were to build two additional classrooms, in Fucpe outside La Romana in the Dominican Republic. http://www.togetherforbetter.se/

Unfortunately the school was damaged by the devastating hurricane Maria. Therefore, ”Together for Better” will instead receive  financial support from the ”Fonds d’Urgence d’Aide Humanitaire” of the Bazar International in order to rebuild two schools in the Dominican Republic

Another Scandinavian related project on the list is “MMCC, Mobile Mini Circus for Children“, who organize activities for children traumatized by the war in Afghanistan The charity is based in Copenhagen, Denmark and has been nominated by the Dutch stand.

Fresh look for the Scandinavian Stands!

In 2013 the Scandinavian Gift stand decided to replace the more than 40 year old construction by having a replica built by Forum pour l’emploi a.s.b.l. (http://www.fpe.lu).

The old Scandinavian Food stand was becoming a security risk and increasingly difficult to build up. In 2014 the stand was replaced by a new construction in the same design as the Gift stand.

We thank our sponsors below and, not at least, all you amazing people who every year is sharing with us how we Scandinavian’s celebrate Christmas.
