SIWA & Diplomatic Community Bazaar

The annual SIWA and Diplomatic Community Bazaar is our cornerstone event, which has also been the largest international fundraising event in Seoul. Since its inception in 1962, the SIWA and Diplomatic Community Bazaar has raised more than KRW 3 billion and has never skipped a year. Year after year diplomatic missions, welfare organizations and business sponsors join SIWA to showcase a diverse range of international products, artifacts and delicacies. All proceeds go towards supporting local Korean charities.

In 2020, due to exceptional circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, SIWA found innovative ways to continue charitable giving and to carry on the legacy of celebrating diversity and culture. The first ever SIWA and Diplomatic Community Online Bazaar was held. With the help of SIWA’s generous sponsors, members and individual shoppers, funds were raised for Holy Welfare Family Hospital and Korean Unwed Mothers Families Association.

Through SIWA’s philanthropy projects, our support continues and the 59th Bazaar opens its virtual gates again this November. Visit our website and take a tour among the various international goods, artifacts and delicacies.
