Medical clowns Yazidis

Seeking to alleviate Yazidi children’s pain, Israeli medical clowns teach others how to cure suffering with laughter.

The Yazidis in Iraq, and especially children, were the victims of ISIS’ heinous crimes.

There’s more to clowning than just laughter – there is also comfort and healing.

Israeli medical clowns recently hosted a group of Yazidis from Iraq to give them a special training in medical clowning.

Their goal: To help children suffering trauma from their experience under ISIS.
