How does your donation help?

The mission of the Doktor Kloun NPO is to boost the recovery of hospitalised children by bringing them cheer and hope through a personalised clown performance.

Your donation helps us organise weekly visits of cheer by Clown Doctors throughout the year in the 6th Department of the Tallinn Children’s Hospital, the Children’s Clinic of the Tartu University Hospital, the Child Surgery and Oncology Department of the Maarjamõisa Hospital, and in the Narva Hospital.

A Clown Doctor does not merely provide entertainment, but strength. During their weekly visits, Clown Doctors establish close relationships with children who are hospitalised for a long time, as well as with their families and the medical staff, so that everyone is waiting for their next visit. Clown Doctors help reduce hospital stress by taking children to a world of imagination, tricks and playfulness, enabling to see the brighter and cheerful side of the hospital environment. Playing is one of the most powerful ways to overcome hopelessness and inject energy into an unfamiliar situation. Laughter has magic powers, reducing pain and releasing happiness hormones, strengthening the heart, relaxing muscles, boosting the immune system, alleviating stress, providing support in difficult situations, and creating connections between people. Laughter also helps the body to produce more leucocytes, which are essential for combating various diseases, incl. cancer. The work of Clown Doctors in Estonian children’s hospitals has shown that the special positive energy persists among children even for some time after their visit.

Clown Doctors do not give things; their gifts for the hospitalised children include laughter and good mood. But they also have bubble blowers and balloons with them to leave behind a memory of a cheerful encounter. For €5, we can buy bubble blowers; for €10, gift balloons; and for €25, toys, musical instruments, pocket magic tricks, juggling balls and other equipment for Clown Doctors.

The Clown Care charity organisations operate globally for more than 30 years, with hundreds of hospitals throughout the world having approved Clown Doctor programmes. The Doktor Kloun NPO was established in 2006 and, over the past 12 years, its Clown Doctors have visited over 19,000 hospitalised children.

The organisation is included on the list of income tax incentive non-profit organizations. Read more about taxes here: Donations and taxes.
