We are very pleased to welcome among CWBI’s community our new Austrian member – Clowns ohne Grenzen Österreich – which brilliantly went through its application process and have received the support of its mentor CWB Germany since 2014.
They have consistently proved their capacity and willingness to become a new chapter during the projects they carried out in partnership with other chapters. They went on tours in Nepal in 2014, Panama in 2015, participated to a joint mission with CWB Canada in Haïti, and went to Romania in 2016 with CWB Belgium, a project in partnership with Caritas and Save The Children. In addition to their international projects, they also implemented shows and workshops to relieve the suffering of children and families in refugee centers and in Austria. They performed in Macondo, the historical refugee settlement in Vienna which was opened in 1956, and offers shelter to almost 2000 people fleeing their country.
They were officially integrated to CWBI on December 6th, during our quarterly board meeting.
We wish them to continue their hard work and to give out smiles to a lot of children by our sides!
