The Diplomatic Spouses Budapest is organizing  their 4th charity fair at the Intercontinental Hotel this coming up Sunday, November, 30. 2014.

The Diplomatic Fair is organized by the Diplomatic Spouses of Budapest (DSB), which is a non-political, non-religious, non-profit association, founded in 2000 by a group of spouses in the diplomatic community to bring together spouses of Heads of Missions and of other diplomats accredited to Hungary.

According to the organizers the aim of the event is to raise money for local charities. The charity work is carried out on a voluntary basis, as it was said by Frances Goodfriend – DSB vice-president at the past days press meeting, where  Natallia Khainouskaya – President, Katalin Skapér – DSB vice-president, Gábor Márton – representing „OUR HOUSE” – „A MI HAZUNK” – Esztergom, Bettina Aradi – representing the Hungarian National Federation of the Blind and Visually Impaired – Guide Dog Training School – Csepel and  delegate from SOFI – Special Education and Development Institute,  announced among other things there will be 45 embassies with national stands and 29 countries in the food corner. Visitors are also invited to shop around handicrafts, clothes, jewelry, household embroidery, pick nice clothing at the second-hand corner where all the items are donated by diplomats’ wives. Also on the spot there will be men’s corner, children’s corner, international bazaar, traditional music and dance.

Over the years the DSB has raised more than 30 million HUF all of which has been distributed amongst a number of Hungarian institutions benefiting disadvantaged groups, children with learning disabilities, the elderly, victims of domestic violence and children with cancer.

This year’s funds raised during the Diplomatic Fair will be distributed to the three organizations that DSB is supporting:
