Smile On Campaign

We are firm believers that laughter is the best medicine & a SMILE is the purest act of expression. In times when we are required to wear masks and keep our social distance, we truly believe that smiling and sharing smiles will benefit everyone.

Dr Klown has therefore created the  SMILE ON  campaign that will hopefully post thousands of SMILES online.

Follow these simple instructions and share your biggest smile:

1) Take a photo of yourself showing your biggest smile,

2) Post your photo on your favourite social profile with the hashtag #smileon and tag @drklown (on Instagram) / @dr klown (on Facebook) or send it to us via a private message & we will post it ourselves for you,

3) Nominate others  to SmileOn and share their smile.

Turn on your camera and show us your biggest smile ever 📸

Dr Klown during the Covid-19 outbreak

In view of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation, Dr Klown has suspended its services at Mater Dei Hospital with immediate effect. We believe that at this time it is prudent to allow maximum space to hospital care workers and it is important that we minimise any risk of infection transmission in the process. We will continue to monitor the situation through liaison with the health authorities and we will update our position accordingly.

Dr Klown Day

To celebrate its 6th year in Malta, Dr KIown are organising a fun-filled ‘’Dr Klown Day’’ with the aim of increasing public awareness about our organisation. Over the past 6 years, Klown Doctors has visited over 10,000 children, bringing them relief from pain, stress and boredom in local hospital wards. This year we would like to invite all children in the primary school age group to join Dr Klown, in a Parade on the St Julians – Sliema promenade.

This event will consist of an informal parade of children dressed as clowns (accessories or coloured clothing are enough – no need for a full costume), while they are accompanied by a parent/carer. Fun is definitely guaranteed, as children will have the opportunity to meet the Klown doctors, Disney characters, clowns, and also get their hands on figure balloons while dancing to the parade music!
Participants will show their solidarity with sick children through placards, banners and drawings, which they can prepare at home with adult help.
The event is also supported by:

  • H.E. The President of Malta,
  • The Commissioner of Children,
  • Ms Mac Namara – Director General for Education and Employment,
  • Rev. Dr Charles Mallia – Delegate for Catholic Education,
  • HSBC Malta Foundation,
  • The Farsons Foundation,
  • Scouts Group San Giljan,
  • San Giljan Local Council
