Food and Handicrafts from all over the world in Pretoria
An International Bazaar and Family Fun day will be hosted in Pretoria on 20 May, as a charity fundraising initiative of the International Diplomatic Spouses Association – IDSA.
Handicrafts and food from more than 30 countries all over the world will be on sale. There will be a Raffle with amazing prizes, entertainment for children, as well as performances by the Gum Boot Dancers from Boys' High and the Dare to Dream ballet dancers from Hammanskraal, among others.
All profits will be destined to support various charitable organizations, as one of the main purposes of the association.
IDSA is an organization comprised of spouses of Ambassadors and High Commissioners accredited to South Africa and embodies a vital link between the diplomatic community and ordinary South Africans, especially vulnerable and underprivileged groups. Last year alone, IDSA raised over R350 000 to ease the plight of women and children through various local charities, in addition to direct donations of food, toiletries, toys and hours of volunteer work.
