Laughter is the best medicine Daimer ProCent Initiative

People in hospitals, retirement homes, refugee hostels, and treatment centers don't often have much to laugh about. "Clowns in Medizin und Pflege Deutschland e. V." is an association of clowns dedicated to providing comic relief. The Daimler ProCent initiative is now helping these clowns to reach even more people

"A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down in a most delightful way." The comic-relief clowns in Bremen provide this spoonful of sugar when they conjure up smiles on patients' faces. Each visit begins with the question: "May we come in?" The qualified clowns from Bremen and Delmenhorst bring laughter and lightness into the rooms.

Laughter is the best medicine! Laughter has a positive effect on everybody's wellbeing. Countless studies prove it.

A day without laughter is a day wasted

Charlie Chaplin

It's a medicine that relieves pain and encourages creativity. It has no side effects. On their visits, the Bremen-based comic-relief clowns make a valuable contribution to the recovery of sick children and to the wellbeing of older folks in care homes. They now also appear at refugee hostels, where they help people to forget their everyday worries for a short time at least. They bring color to a sometimes gloomy world. Working together with clowns also makes things easier for parents, doctors, and nurses at hospitals and medical centers.

ProCent donated 2,300 euros to help finance a mobile show stage, which enables the clowns to be more flexible and more professional. It's the ideal solution, especially in refugee hostels and half-way houses that don't have a suitable infrastructure.
