WINDHOEK, 09 MAY (NAMPA) – The Association of Diplomatic Spouses (ADS) International Food and Craft Bazaar will take place at the Franco-Namibian Culture Centre (FNCC) in Windhoek on Saturday.
The association hosts the event to give Namibians a chance to enjoy the cuisine and cultures of the various countries which hold diplomatic ties with Namibia.
ADS President Ida Alina Salleh, who is the spouse of the Malaysian High Commissioner to Namibia, told a media briefing in Windhoek on Monday this year, 16 different countries will showcase their traditional food.
“The bazaar is a charity event which ADS has been hosting in cooperation with the FNCC for the past seven years,” she said.
The bazaar starts at 10h00.
Funds raised from the food and drinks sold by the embassies of countries such as Angola, China, France, Ghana, Turkey, Japan and Russia will be donated to a local initiative that supports child welfare.
Some of the entertainment will include yoga demonstrations by the Indian and Japanese embassies. The Japanese Embassy is also planning a Kendo fencing demonstration. Kendo is a form of self-defence using bamboo swords.
Visitors will also be entertained by local artists.
