Vietnam attends UN’s charity fair in Geneva

Vietnam’s permanent mission to the United Nations, the WTO and other international organisations in Geneva joined 63 other nations at a charity bazaar held at the UN headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, on November 19.

The charity fair, organised by the UN Women’s Guild every year, was among efforts to raise money for needy children around the planet. 

The Vietnamese booth selling traditional food, handicrafts and silk products attracted a large number of visitors. 

All the proceeds will be donated to projects helping disadvantaged children in the world, including those in Vietnam. 

Almost 6,000 visitors came to the bazaar to buy gifts, enjoy a variety of food and cultural activities, and also bought lottery tickets to raise fund for the children. 

The UN Women’s Guild has so far donated 6.7 million CHF (US$7.3 million) to around 1,600 projects in over 100 countries.
