For children


Many children struggle to cope with hospital environment where pain, fear and loneliness are their constant companions. Hospital stays are associated with boredom and anxiety, and the separation from family and friends can have long-term effects on children’s physical, emotional and mental health. These feelings are intensified   with the absence of child-friendly activities in the hospital’s daily routine,   neglecting the importance of children’s basic emotional needs.

As soon as the healthcare clowns of RED NOSES/ Jordan show-up in the paediatric wards, the air fills with fun, music, dancing and laughter. The joy and empathy that the clowns bring make fear and pain quickly forgotten. Consequently, the child is happily distracted, able to disconnect from the stressful situation they are facing and reconnect with pleasant childhood emotions and the happy environment that the clowns bring along.
