Hospital Clowns

Laughter helps to improve the way sick children and their families handle stress, pain and anxiety in the Hospital.

Clowns bring smiles and laughter to all the corners of the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital: the rooms, the psychiatry building and even the operating theatre. 

All our clowns are professional actors with specialised healthcare training. We use the clown’s artistic techniques and social theatre to intervene, as necessary, in coordination with the other healthcare professionals.

Clowns bring hope and reassurance to situations that can be very distressing for the children and their families.

Pallapupas is a non-profit organisation that works in close collaboration with the healthcare personnel in order to bring laughter to paediatric hospitals and humanise health care to children.
