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

More than 700 clowns at Mellieha Primary School

May 9, Mellieha primary School celebrated Clown Day. All students and staff came to school wearing colourful clown costumes. There were over 700 clowns at school.
Says Ms Cordina: “The main aim was to help lift the spirits and boost the morale of our students who not always have an easy life. We also managed to raise more awareness about Dr Klown, the clown doctors who visit children in hospital to ease away the pain children feel while in hospital.

It is important to instil the value of helping those in need from a very young age. Life is not always easy, but it is always beautiful. It depends on how you look at things. Life is what you make it and it can be as colourful as you want to.”
We thank the school for their continued support!

Patch Adams Conference

A group of 8 Dr Klown volunteers visited a 2-day workshop followed by a Conference by Dr Hunter “Patch” Adams in Genova, well known from the film “Patch” in which he was impersonated by the late Robin Williams. The workshop was attended by 140 clown doctors, mainly from Italy, whilst the Conference attracted a public of 880 people, clown doctors as well as medical doctors, nurses, volunteers.

It was a revealing experience for all of us, and we thank the MCCF for supporting us to make it possible for our delegation to attend such once-in-a-lifetime occasion.

We also met with other Clown Doctor NGO’s with whom we plan to keep contact to exchange ideas and good practices.
