For more than 20 years, the German Charity Christmas Bazaar has traditionally taken place in the pre-Christmas period on the grounds of the German Embassy in Beijing. There, people from a wide variety of nations and cultures have the opportunity to get in the mood for Christmas with German treats and the purchase of handmade gifts. The proceeds will be used to support aid projects in and around Beijing. These projects take care of children, parents and families, sick and disadvantaged people as well as people with a disability.
In 2022 the bazaar will unfortunately have to be canceled due to Covid. Nevertheless, the participating charity organizations managed to collect donations of 200,000 RMB. Among other things, the Rotary Club Beijing.
The handover event was under the patronage and support of the German ambassador Dr. Patricia Flor. As Rotary represenmtative, our Managing counsel Daniel Albrecht had a great chat with her about their good old times in Japan and friends in common.
