Equipped with an abundance of humour, jokes and tricks, RED NOSES Clowndoctors International sends clowns into hospitals to administer their own style of therapy: a dose of smiles and laughter. Visiting patients directly at their bedside, they provide everyone - from children to the elderly - with invaluable good cheer and vitality, a key element in regaining balance and coping with the situation.
Founded in Austria in 1994, it was one of the first clown hospital programs in Europe.The organization formed its international foundation to build up, monitor and partly finance partner organizations in Central and Eastern Europe. Wolf Theiss helped RED NOSES establish a new partner organization in Croatia in 2010, and is also providing legal support for the branch in Slovenia.
