“This year we had the highest number of Embassies participating, and for the first time a charity concert also preceded the bazaar. ”
It was a great honour and wonderful experience to be honorary president of this year’s bazaar. I think it is a great event for a good cause, and also an excellent opportunity for engagement between the Embassies and the locals. This year we had the highest number of Embassies participating, and for the first time a charity concert also preceded the bazaar. I believe the Macedonia Welcome Centre is doing an outstanding job in bringing foreigners and locals together, by organising charity events, coffee mornings, diplomatic trips and number of other programs. I hope the DMWC will continue with these activities.

“It is a unique event that brings together members of the International community and the citizens of Macedonia”
I am very happy that the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands has been part of the International Charity Bazaar since its founding in 2010. It is a unique event that brings together members of the International community and the citizens of Macedonia, and its meaning is at least two-fold: not only it enables promotion of each of the countries’ cultures and products, but it also generates awareness and financial support for many marginalized group in the society. I would therefore wholeheartedly support the organizers of this event – Dobredojde Macedonia Welcome Centre in their future endeavors.
H.E. Wouter Plomp, the Ambasador of the Netherlands in Macedonia
I think that Dobredojde Macedonia Welcome Centre has an important function as a bridge between the international community and the local environment. It promotes the integration of newcomers and it is aframework that can be useful to institutions, companies and to the Macedonian world of culture not only to internationalize but also promote itself. The Magazine, for its quality and format is a very useful tool highly appreciated by the international community.
H.E. Mr.Masssimo Bellelli, the Ambasador of Italy in Macedonia
The Macedonia Welcome Center has been very useful after I moved to Skopje, especially in its practical aspects, as I was quickly involved and very busy with my mission in the Embassy. I was happy to benefit from your efficiency and kindness. It is very important that an organization like yours exists to help newcomers adapt to your beautiful country and to get to know it better.
H.E. Mrs. Laurence Auer, the Ambassador of France in Macedonia
Dobredojde Macedonia Welcome Centre is a unique voluntary organization here in Macedonia. It brings Macedonian people and the international community closer. It offers many interesting ways for the promotion of our countries, people, art and customs. I am proud to be a supporter of DMWC right from its launch.

The Jewish community of Macedonia had the pleasure to participate in and support the 2012 Dobredojde Macedonia Welcome Centre International Charity Bazaar. In our booth, we offered our traditional falafel dish of fried chick pea balls inside the pita bread with tehini sauce. The falafel was a great success and many people from Macedonia and other countries enjoyed the authentic Israeli taste.

The Bulgarian Embassy in Skopje took a very active part in the International Charity Bazaar 2012 because it believes that children in need deserve our support and sympathy. The Bulgarian mission was one of the main promoters and supporters of the idea to get together all embassies in Skopje for this humanitarian event. We are ready to support such noble causes in the future as well.

Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Skopje welcomes the initiative of "Dobredojde Macedonia Welcome Centre" to organize the humanitarian International Bazaar. We hope it will become a traditional charity bazaar and that Skopje will join other capitals around the world which organize humanitarian events on the occasion of the World Children’s Day. Those noble events remind us of the importance of the participation of individuals, organizations and institutions to help the most vulnerable group in society - children.
