Your assistance is an invaluable contribution to the development of psychosocial activities by the Ukrainian Red Cross Society and certainly a tangible support in the dissemination of information about methods and forms of psychosocial support. Thanks to the received good expertise, the URCS will be able to achieve great results in improving the welfare of the beneficiaries affected by the crisis.
RED NOSES clowns are able to turn tears into smiles. They bring happiness and colour into the hospital room. With the brilliance of a rainbow, they transport sick people to a world filled with colours, motion, light and freedom, and their poetry remains long after they are gone.
I can see that RED NOSES Clowns are working very professionally, bringing a positive feeling to the clinic and working in perfect connection with the medical staff. Thanks to their presence, we had no big dramas in the tents. It was a huge help!
I saw RED NOSES during a MSF children's vaccination campaign in Moria Camp, Lesbos. They worked very attentively and consciously and they had a very good understanding of the situation and sensitivity towards the children. That was very pleasant and helpful for the work of the doctors.
The work you do is just as important for the target group as the work we do on the ground. Just one performance has a huge impact on refugees and migrants. It changes something, intangible but still real.
The clowns from Red Noses International brought laughter to patients and MSF staff alike. The value of this kind of visit for people’s wellbeing can’t be underestimated.
