We support Danske Hospitalsklovne
Each year, 75,000 children are admitted to Danish hospitals. For many it is a short visit, for others a more extended period. And for some children, illness is a condition of life.
When a child is ill, it is often the illness and the treatment that sets the framework for what the child can and must do. Play and immediacy can be pushed into the background by seriousness, unpleasant experiences, and difficult emotions.
Danish Hospital Clowns works to strengthen hospitalized children’s zest for life and courage so that they can better cope with the course of the illness. Danish Hospital Clowns meet and recognizes the child where he is. In the anxiety, in the joy, in the boredom.
