The Clown Doctors make a child master of a situation at a time when it is clearly not in charge. Everything is possible and nothing is wrong, depending on what the child in question indicates. The Clown Doctors talk, laugh, play and dance with the children. But they are also there for a quiet moment of reading or just holding a tiny little hand.
The clowns are personalities who get into the craziest situations because of their naive view of the world. But what is really important is that the children get the feeling that they are much more clever and funnier than the clowns. They are the ones who decide what is going to happen. That the clowns are terribly funny is not important; everything involves around the child for a change. That means that the Clown Doctors need to anticipate and improvise. There is so much more to their job than just putting on a red nose and being funny. Thanks to their improvisational talent, they can get through to each and every child. They try and involve the children by finding out what they like. With a suitcase full of musical instruments, puppets and funny hats, they bring laughter to the ward. Laughter is, in this case, their medication.
The Clown Doctors let rays of sunshine into a scary situation. The patients are the bright centre of attention. However, the wishes of a child and its parents always take precedence. If a child is afraid of a clown, or if he or she is too sick or not in the mood for a clown's visit, then that wish is the clowns' command. A soft, whispered greeting and a smile might be exactly what that sick child needs. Summing up: the Clown Doctors bring tailor-made laughter and fun to sick kids.
