RED NOSES Clowndoctors International - Palestine

In 2012, RED NOSES Palestine was founded as a subsidiary artistic organization of RED NOSES International.

By bringing humor and laughter into Palestinian hospitals, our team of clowndoctors boost the resistance and willpower of their patients. As clowndoctors take their patients’ individual needs and interests into consideration, the result is a special connection between the patient and the artist. The patient’s response is an elevation of mood coupled with enchantment and laughter, 

An array of laughter studies show that laughter releases endorphins and therefore has a positive effect on the general well-being, strengthening the immune system and the psyche, easing pain and tightening social bonds. 

Their general objective is the empowerment of patients in hospital with coping strategies to better deal with their personal situation in hospital thereby minimizing their stress levels during hospitalization is our main concern. The concept of therapeutic clowning is very effective as the clowns are specialists for regaining childlike vitality and for assuming a positive attitude in a conflict situation.

Professional performing artists are specially trained as hospital clowndoctors and carry out this exceptional work.

Teams of two clowndoctors make regular clown visits to hospital wards once or twice a week.  Giving individual treatment as they visit their patients from bed to bed, they bring lots of laughter and brighter moments to the serious, real-life problems the patients are encountering.

A bridge between humour and health treatment is successfully created, increasing the quality of life and the well-being of those in medical care.
