Make the wish come true of a child with serious illness
The Clownbulance Project was established in 2015 by medical clowns, from The charity Dream Doctors. The project was established to offer sick children the chance to be able, briefly, to escape their routine of painful treatments — and make a wish come true together with their family and the medical clown accompanying them during their hospitalization. The child patient, together with the clown, chooses a wish that they want to fulfil. Then the Clownbulance team makes it happen. The ambulance transporting the child is a colourful and playfully-designed vehicle which, from the moment the child gets in, draws them into a world of fantasy.
Utilizing the Clownbulance as a tool for making wishes come true, we facilitate the relief of emotional blockages and fears, and we create relationships based on trust with the children. When they laugh or cry — we know that we’ve connected with them. Making a wish come true for these children is magical, bringing out optimism and hope, providing the children and their families with renewed strength as they continue their journey.
