Child Line Mpumalanga – Child line is an effective non-profit organization that works collectively to protect children from all forms of violence and to create a culture of children’s rights in South Africa.
South African Medical Expedition (Acornhoek) – established to provide hope to woman and children in rural communities. SAME provides two vital services to the communities in which they work – home based care and medical support. These services overlap in such a way that no child, orphan or vulnerable, is left to fall between the cracks – therefore creating a safety net within their own community.
Clowns without Borders South Africa in partnership with Child Line Mpumalanga and SAME in Acornhoek have been on a performance tour called “Inkukhu Krazy”, loosely tied into the themes of the precautionary measures to take around contracting Malaria, which is of great concern in the areas visited. The show was an absurdist adventure into the crazy world of chickens, mosquitos, traffic officers and how they collided in a whirlwind of laughter.
