Clowns Without Borders stir up laughter and share smiles with many children among the temporary hospitals in post-earthquake Haiti.
“Now child without a smile,” They say… “We send laughter around the world!” These Clowns take off the limits and really use laughter as a medicine to change desperate situations.
Clowns Without Borders offers laughter to relieve the suffering of all persons, especially children, who live in areas of crisis including refugee camps, conflict zones and territories in situations of emergency. They found themselves in Haiti surrounded by beautiful children who’s spirits seem to be lifted with every laugh.
I have always enjoyed the presence of a clown and the good feelings that they bring with them. Clowns Without Boarders had been over to Haiti previously; nearly a year earlier. But they were invited to come back so they decided to do it.
