‘‘Clown doctor’ treats sick children with humor

Recently, a team of “clown doctors” from Israel came to Children’s Hospital in Guiyang, Guizhou Province, to bring “happy therapy” to children with funny shows. The doctors not only made the children laugh, but their parents as well. The doctors believe that this approach is able to relieve some of the pain for the children and speed up their recovery. The first “clown doctor” team was founded in New York in 1986, and nowadays, teams can be found in almost all children’s hospitals in Israel.
