On December 16, 2018 the VIII Charitable Diplomatic Christmas Fair was held in the new concert and exhibition hall "Gorzal".
The diplomatic fair is a long-term initiative of diplomats, aimed at supporting children's medical institutions in Odesa and saving the lives of children. Since 2011, there have been purchased equipment for the funds of the fairs - 1 million 316 thousand hryvnia, which saved the lives of more than 3.5 thousand children.


All the funds raised this year will be used to purchase equipment for the maternity hospital ¹5.


There are many countries in the world whose capitals do not have as many diplomatic missions as Odesa. This means that in the international arena, Odesa, like Ukraine as a whole, occupies an important position. Every year we hold various events, but this day clearly demonstrates that people live in peace, tolerance and, most importantly, that we, the diplomats, love and respect Odesa and Ukraine, ” said the doyen of the Diplomatic Corps, the Consul General of the Republic of Romania in Odesa, Mr. Emil Rapcea.


This year, representatives of diplomatic missions accredited in Odessa, once again tried to surprise Odesa residents and city guests with a variety of culinary dishes and sweets, national drinks and souvenirs, cosmetic products and haberdashery.

The mayor of Odesa Gennadiy Trukhanov thanked diplomats for their active work in developing relations between countries, loving kindness, as well as regular participation in the life of our city and attitude to Odesa: “Odesa once again is painted with the colors of various flags of the world! Year after year, diplomats and their families prepare for this day with particular scrupulousness, because the fair not only carries an important social mission, but also vividly demonstrates the traditions and culture of many countries. ”
