In Pics: Indian Women's Association Summer Bazaar 2019

Indian Women Association's (IWA) summer Bazaar was held on April 30 at the Suntec Convention Centre. We bring you the highlights of the IWA Bazaar, which had 90 enterprising organisations from Singapore, different parts of India and world selling their wares, having a blast doing it and contributing to charitable causes. 

The next Bazaar will be held in September this year, and we'll keep you updated on the details. But for now, here's a look at what happened at the IWA Summer Bazaar of 2019:
