America Big Apple Circus: Clown Care founded 1986
“Ministering to sick children goes beyond medication and technology. When a child begins to laugh it means he’s probably beginning to feel better. I see the clowns as healers.” – Dr. John M. Driscoll Jr., former Chairman of the Pediatrics Department at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City

France--Le Rire Médecin de vrais clowns à l'hôspital

Die Clowndoktoren machen Visite bei Kindern in Krankenhäusern und bei älteren Menschen in Senioren- und Pflege-Einrichtungen. Unsere Arbeit finanziert sich rein aus Spenden.

Brazil--Doutores da Alegria
"Em 1986, Michael Christensen, um palhaço americano, diretor do Big Apple Circus de Nova Iorque, apresentava-se numa comemoração num hospital daquela cidade, quando pediu para visitar as crianças internadas que não puderam participar do evento. Improvisando, substituiu as imagens da internação por outras alegres e engraçadas. Essa foi a semente da Clown Care Unit™, grupo de artistas especialmente treinados para levar alegria a crianças internadas em hospitais de Nova Iorque. Em 1988 Wellington Nogueira passou a integrar a trupe americana. Voltando ao Brasil, em 1991, resolveu tentar aqui um projeto parecido, enquanto ex-colegas faziam o mesmo na França (Le Rire Medecin) e Alemanha (Die Klown Doktoren). Os preparativos deram um trabalho danado, mas valeu: em setembro daquele ano, numa luminosa iniciativa do Hospital e Maternidade Nossa Senhora de Lourdes, em São Paulo (hoje Hospital da Criança), teve início nosso programa."

Netherlands CliniClowns-Homepage (Dutch and English Bilingual HP)
"In the early years, CliniClowns Foundation the Netherlands only performed for seriously ill children, in the oncology department. Meanwhile the field of activity of CliniClowns has extended and now includes children’s wards of more than 110 hospitals and other care institutions....However, children in need can also be found in places other than hospitals. Many of them are nursed/cared for at home or reside in institutions for paediatric rehabilitation and disability care. CliniClowns is eager to reach these children."
The Dutch CliniClowns inspired hospital clown activities in Japan.
