The youth and the children who meet in the Saint Rachel Center in Jerusalem and at Our Lady Woman of Valor in Tel Aviv attended the bazaar with those who run the programs for them. They had spent some weeks before the event preparing various kinds of handiworks and arts and crafts that could be sold at the bazaar. They also sold baskets that are made by women from the asylum seeker community, most of whom who have been victims of human traffickers, and who gather in the Kutchinate workshop in south Tel Aviv. The money raised will be used to sponsor their activities.
