Challenge

The Clown School in Dnepr has been underway from 2012, preparing the masters of clowning to work with children in local hospitals. Now there is a serious problem - lack of funds for equipment and props. There is no money to buy even colorful balloons and clown noses.What is a funny clown without a red nose and colorful beads? Help the Clown School! And then our school will open its doors to all who wish to study hospital clowning and bring joy to children! Laugh - it is a cure for many diseases!

Solution

The Clown School in Ukraine needs funds for equipment and props, for more volunteerism as well as promoting and educating new teams of hospital clowns.Power of laughter not only reduces anxiety and stress, but also significantly boosts the immune system in our bodies. Our Clowns in the department are cheerful friends and assistants, always looking forward to it and always reluctant to let go of both children and parents.

Long-Term Impact

To improve the health of the sick children in hospitals, through the means of clowning therapy: humor, interaction and play. Infusing little patients with positive energy empowers them and increases their motivation not to give in to their illness but to fight for their healing.
