On Sunday 22nd April, the Sri Lankan Embassy participated in the annual International Bazaar organised by the Diplomatic Women’s Club in Stockholm at the Elite Palace Hotel.
On the day of the Bazaar the venue positively exploded with culture and colour and the visitors were met by tastes, scents, sounds and views from all over the world. Mrs. Madhu Sajjanhar, President of the Diplomatic Women’s Club and Spouse of the Ambassador of India welcomed the guests and Mrs. Susanne Eberstein, First Deputy Speaker of the Swedish Riksdag opened the bazaar.
The money, which was raised from the selling of food, clothing and crafts from the 35 represented countries and from raffles and auctions with prices given by the embassies, was donated to support the work of NGO Save the Children in Sweden. The event also included several cultural performances.
The Sri Lankan bazaar table was laden with food, tea and spices as well as products from Best of Sri Lanka in Sweden.
Special thanks to Ms. Rebecca Wennberg for making beautiful flower arrangements.
