Case #1801

Clowns Without Borders Bring Smiles to those in Crisis


Clowns Without Borders is a ‘not for profit’ NGO which travels around the world bringing smiles and moments of joy to those in crisis. They work in war zones, natural disaster areas, refugee camps and disadvantaged social areas. Their aim is to work mostly with traumatised children, watching over and improving their psychological condition. “A smile has the potential to bring back a collective psychological balance, it promotes social and creative values, as well as tolerance and diversity within communities.”
