IWCR supports charities with the money raised at the bazaar

Each year the International Women’s Club of Riga (IWCR) arranges the Charity Bazaar to raise money for Latvian charities. In 2018 this one event raised over €45,000 which is now being carefully distributed amongst our twelve selected Latvian charities for specific projects and needs. To read more about the charities we support (primarily for women and children), please visit our overview.

Charity Work

The IWCR members raise funds to provide support and financial assistance for charities carefully selected each year.

Our primary focus is on helping families, young mothers, the elderly and the abused both in Riga and the Latvian countryside.


The Bazaar features

  • Market tables from most embassies in Latvia selling national products and foods
  • A silent auctionto raise money from the highest bidder on the many great items which have been donated
  • A play area, face painting, performance from children’s choirs
  • Presentations from local charities highlighting their important work

We invite your company to partner
