The event organised by the International Women's Club of Bratislava (IWCB), in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Bratislava Municipality and the diplomatic community, will start at 10:00 and will last until 17:00.

Last year’s Bazaar raised €92,000 which enabled the IWCB to successfully fund 21 Slovak organisations in need across the country. Of these, 41 percent were projects for child/youth groups. The majority of funding (60 percent) goes to charities registered in Bratislava. The remainder was split amongst organisations located in Trnava (13 percent) Nitra, Košice and Prešov (each 9 percent).
