"A DAY WITHOUT LAUGHTER IS A DAY WASTED"
Clownselors, a volunteer based group engaged in medical clowning. Dressed up as clowns, we interact and perform different acts for children and adults. We use humour to expedite the healing process at hospitals, along with sessions at old age homes, mental homes, orphanages, special schools, shelter homes, refugee camps, schools, universities and workplaces. We also organize free hugs.
"We have found that having them around reduces stress for patients, and for doctors. We’ve seen severely sick children start to speak to us and laugh and even have an appetite for food. We also use them during awareness weeks to help send out our message"
