IWCM charity work is all about making a positive difference in Moldova by devoting our resources and time to causes we believe in. We like to support causes which bring positive social returns and/or deal with economic empowerment of women. Our grants have funded a wide range of projects throughout the country which benefit those in need, especially women and children.

Our charity work can only happen thanks to the help and generosity of our local and international sponsors, supporters and members and we remain deeply grateful for their assistance.

The major fundrising event of the IWCM is the International Charity Bazaar which traditionally takes place every year during the first weekend in December. Over the last 5 years we raised over 3.000.000 MDL. supporting numerous projects and charitable causes.
