The Hanoi International Women's Club (HIWC) will host the much-anticipated 20th Annual Charity Bazaar, one of the key charity events in the country, on November 27.

The HIWC Charity Bazaar is an unique international bazaar and involves the international and diplomatic communities from approximately 30 countries in Hanoi, as well local businesses and charity organizations.

During the event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 3.30 p.m., visitors will have the opportunity to taste food from many different countries, as well as shop a fantastic selection of products including wines, clothing, handicrafts and Christmas gifts.

As in previous years, there will be a lively Kid's Corner with activities, as well as a silent auction with a great selection. Also back this year will be a stage with live music and performances from different countries.

Proceeds from the bazaar go to support many charities in and around Hanoi. Last year, the HIWC supported 16 projects ranging from HIV/AIDS home care medical kits for children in Bac Ninh; set-up costs for a shelter to house female victims of human trafficking in Lao Cai; support for gifted ethnic minority students to attend university Ha Noi and Cataract and Retinal Eye Surgeries Quang Ninh.

This year's event will be held at United Nations International School Hanoi, Phu Thuong Ward, Lac Long Quan Road, Tay Ho District, Hanoi.

Tickets are priced VND100,000 for adults and VND50,000 for children ages 3 12 years. Children under the age of 3 are free.

Tickets are available at the gate on the day of the bazaar, or can be purchased in advance from J.A.F.A, Jaspas, Oasis, Pure Heaven and PUKU.
