Dachverband Clowns in Medizin und Pflege
Dachverband Clowns in Medizin und Pflege DEUTSCHLAND e.V.:
In Germany, there is a growing number of clinic-clowns visiting children in hospitals, senior citizens in OAPs and handicapped people in their respective institutions. Many clinic-clowns are organized in bigger or smaller organizations.
In 2004, the Germany-wide umbrella organization "Dachverband Clowns für Kinder im Krankenhaus Deutschland e.V." was formed to share resources and experiences, to create a platform for concerted PR-work and to ensure a high standard of quality in the professional work on and off site.
