The annual SIWA & Diplomatic Community Bazaar brings embassies, organizations, charities, sponsors and volunteers together to raise needed funds for deserving charities in Korea. The 54th Annual Bazaar was held on November 14, 2016 at the Lotte Hotel Seoul, and drew thousands of attendees.

The Ambassadors’ Spouses Association in Seoul (ASAS) brought handcrafted goods and delicacies from 33 countries to this year’s bazaar, and our host nation of Korea was also represented. Local businesses, clubs and charities sold food and products, and SIWA’s generous sponsors provided prizes for raffles. The SIWA Bazaar is a huge undertaking, and it was only thanks to our many volunteers that event was such a success. Many people came together with one objective: to help those less fortunate in Korea and make a positive impact on this community where we live.

Our heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers and participants of the 54th SIWA & ASAS Bazaar. This biggest fundraising event of the year could not have succeeded without the support of embassies, sponsors, vendors, international organizations, charities and our volunteers.

The 2016 Bazaar raised over 59 million KRW for Korean charities.
