International Rescue Committee – The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future.
In May 2009, Clowns Without Borders in collaboration with our sister chapter, CWB-USA, the International Rescue Committee, and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF); travelled to Sudan and Kenya to bring fun and laughter to children who have lived through war, poverty and displacement. Using contemporary clowns and circus performances and workshops, CWB taught children new skills and helped pull communities together in celebration.
FEEDBACK FROM BENEFICIARIES & PARTNER
“Dear Clowns Without Borders, We had a wonderful experience today, I have not seen smiles on children’s faces like today, and not just that, there was a lot to learn from the experience. The attendance was much bigger than we had planned at such short notice: with number getting closer to 600, with students age between 4 and 19 years coming from the neighbourhoods of Kibera and other local schools on the Langata”
