Bringing Smiles to Congo’s Children

A group of performing clowns (creatively named Clowns Without Borders) plans to tour displacement camps in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Children make up more than 50% of the population of camps in eastern DRC. A spokesperson for Clowns Without Borders believes that the clowns may help the camps’ children “overcome their trauma”.

The group previously performed in Syria and Yugoslavia, where their smile-producing initiative was a success.
