Clown-doctors and animation activities carried out by young artists from Fekat Circus, including 4 appropriately trained clown-doctors, for the young patients of the Black Lion hospital, the main public hospital in Addis Ababa.
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To improve the physical, mental and emotional well-being of young patients on the paediatric ward of the Black Lion hospital in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia).
5.600 children aged between 0 and 16 on the paediatric ward of the Black Lion hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The project includes clowns, game rooms and entertainment by 10 young artists from the Fekat Circus, of whom 3 are clown-doctors, trained in annual workshops.
The clowns visit the patients twice a week, providing entertainment in the main room of the paediatric ward and offering various recreational, artistic and play activities using construction and memory games.
These activities improve the emotional and psychological well-being of the young patients and promote their recovery. Fun and creative activities are, in fact, considered therapeutic tools capable of improving the children’s psychological and emotional well-being.
Fekat Circus also attempts to stimulate children and young people living in disadvantaged conditions by offering circus arts and juggling classes at the Association’s compound and in other educational centers (orphanages, homeless shelters and other NGOs) every afternoon.
