The Ministry of Tourism is set to partake for the first time in the annual International Charity Bazaar to be organized by the UN Women's Guild (UNWG) at the UN headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
Egypt will chair this year's edition, which is slated for December 3, 2019.
On that occasion, the ministry plans to offer trip opportunities to Egypt for lottery winners during the event.
Minister of Tourism Rania el Mashat underlined the importance of participating in the bazaar as part of her ministry's efforts to promote Egyptian tourist destinations at major international forums and events.
Organized by the UNWG in collaboration with the Permanent Missions accredited to the UN and the Swiss government, the International Bazaar seeks to raise funds for disadvantaged children around the world.
Last year the event helped provide the funds necessary for nearly 60 projects, including two in Egypt.
