DMEDD’s most prominent fundraising activity is its traditional annual charity bazaar.   Each year, DMEDD organizes a Charity Bazaar with the participation of Foreign Missions in Ankara and the contributions of Turkish Missions abroad. The revenue from the sales of the goods received from the Turkish missions abroad goes to the funding of the scholarships, whereas the donations from the Foreign Missions who participated in the Bazaar are used to finance DMEDD’s social responsibility projects.

Owing to the contributions of the foreign missions that joined in the Bazaar 2019, DMEDD achieved several charity works in 2020. It completed the renovation of its 2020 project school, Ankara Mamak Ali Gültekin Special Education School, and carried out another project, which aimed to provide scholarships for the children of frontline health care workers who lost their lives in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. DMEDD also supplied education materials to 6 schools.

DMEDD is grateful to all foreign missions in Ankara for contributing to the Bazaar. Their invaluable support enabled DMEDD to complete its education projects and became a beacon of hope for the children in need. We also welcome the unwavering support of SHOM, Spouses of the Heads of Missions, which is a leading platform for interaction and constructive dialogue.
