During the past year, we have been working around the clock in the neighbouring countries of Ukraine. Our clowns from Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania, and Croatia have already visited hundreds of children strained in refugee centres set up in the borders.
RED NOSES clowns support children and their families to develop strategies to cope with their new challenging situation. Joy, laughter and play help raise their emotional wellbeing, create normalcy, and bring relief and hope to displaced people.
Being the largest healthcare clown organisation in the world, we have extensive experience working with displaced people and refugees. With our Emergency Smile programme, we can quickly act locally and internationally in critical situations such as this one.

After every session, the children are asking when will they see the clowns again; they are really looking forward to having the sessions with RED NOSES.
The positive impact goes beyond the sessions, afterwards they are very cheerful it reflects on other activities they do… it really brings a lot of smiles in the camp.
