In a lighthearted event during August, employees sold ice-creams to their fellow employees and other people in the neighbourhood, with all proceeds going towards the NGO.
“ These clown doctors give their free time to try and put a smile on the faces of children going through hardships. We wanted to show our appreciation towards the work they do through an event that also shares smiles,” President and CEO Felipe Navarro said.
Dr. Klown is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to provide clown doctor services at Mater Dei Hospital. Clown doctors are not doctors but volunteers from every walk of life that are artistically and psychologically trained to entertain children in hospital.
Clown doctors visit children in their beds, or stay with them while they are having treatment. They improvise around each child’s situation and interests.
