Women from 32 different nations work together to raise funds for local charity

The members of the Association of International Women in Malta (AIWM) transformed the ballroom of the InterContinental into a magical Christmas wonderland and raised record funds for Fondazzjoni Sebħ.

The International Christmas Fair held on Sunday, 19th November and kindly hosted by the InterContinental Hotel Malta, drew crowds of people looking for Christmas bargains and festive fun. Proceeds from the fair go to Fondazzjoni Sebħ, which provides residential and community outreach services to vulnerable women, youths and children.

Father Christmas opened the fair and visitors were treated to creative workshops, Line Dancing by Silver Boots (which had the entire room grooving to the music) Greek dancers swirling, festive music and a fun filled day of festivities. Children met with Father Christmas or painted in the creative corner while the adults got to shop from an amazing selection of goods made by local artisans, delicious baked treats, preloved items and many more goodies. Shouts of joy could be heard from those trying their luck at many of the tombola’s and raffles held throughout the day.

The grand raffle drew the crowds and William Mohan was delighted to win the top prize of a €500 voucher for Sicilia Outlet Village.

The AIWM wishes to thank the many sponsors who generously supported the fair (  and the members of the association who worked tirelessly to create another successful event and raise record funds for Fondazzjoni Sebħ.
