The Asian Diplomatic Spouse Association (ADSA) held its annual bazaar in Cairo with the presence of Egypt’s Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly’s spouse, Eman Salah Hassaballah on Saturday where several Egyptian charity foundations attended.
ADSA plays an important role in boosting cultural cooperation between Asia and Egypt. Soyoung Yoon, spouse of the South Korean ambassador to Egypt said, “Over the event, Korea presented Taekwondo demonstration in cooperation with the Egyptian Taekwondo Federation (ETF) while participants enjoyed the rhythm of Bollywood style dance.”
The ADSA’s annual bazaar also had a raffle drawing for which member embassies provided various kinds of gifts. The Korean embassy offered a music box in the form of Korean traditional jewellery box and other gifts. Ambassadors and wives visited each other’s booth and exchanged information and encouragement.
The ADSA was established in 1975 to promote Egypt-Asia mutual cultural cooperation. It constitutes 28 member countries. The association members meet monthly to discuss the charities’ future plans and vote on the associations that will receive the fund after field visits.
