For 27 years now, IWCK continues to organize on behalf of the International community in Kyiv one of the biggest fundraising events in Ukraine, which aim to help local people in need. It brings together embassies and many local volunteers to create an amazing spectacle on the first weekend of December and collect enough money to fund the IWCK grant competition. IWCK grants funds collected during the Bazaar to local organisations which help women, children, elderly and disabled people in need in Ukraine.

100 % of Charity Bazaar proceeds goes to charity.

Charity

As our primary goal is to raise funds for local charities, IWCK is a registered charitable organization in Ukraine. Join our charity projects which give support to those in need in and around Kyiv, especially children, women, the elderly and disabled. This is a vital part of IWCK’s work and now, more than ever before, our charity projects are valued by the local community.

In 2019-2020 IWCK funded many different projects. Learn more about each of them here.

352THE NUMBER OF CHARITY PROJECTS WE`VE SUPPORTED
Elitsa Zaimova
Moving to Kyiv was not an easy decision for me, but IWCK has made my stay a lot more enjoyable for several reasons:  I found a group of friends to experience the beauty of Kyiv in a more fun way,  I was able to volunteer and join very interesting projects which are developed to help the local community, I had the opportunity to learn a new skill - cooking class. IWCK  helped me be part of a great community where I can learn from the members and contribute to the development of the club. I am so grateful to be part the club, it makes me feel like I am at home.
Elizabeth Kourkov
IWCK gave me vital support when my children were young, and I needed to share my thoughts and feelings with other expat mums. I thought that being on the Steering Committee would mean that I was giving something back, but it turns out that, once more, I gained more than I gave.
