About the charity

The Dream Doctors Project was established in 2002 and we currently work in partnership with 29 hospitals, with more than 100 medical clowns offering care to approximately 200,000 children each year. Dream Doctors work hand-in-hand with medical care staff and assist in more than 40 different medical procedures. The medical clowns have created a new methodology for treatment, by building a special bond with the medical staff and patients and communicating with them in a distinctive way.

The Dream Doctors Project was established in 2002 and we currently work in partnership with 29 hospitals, with more than 100 medical clowns offering care to approximately 200,000 children each year. Dream Doctors work hand-in-hand with medical care staff and assist in more than 40 different medical procedures. The medical clowns have created a new methodology for treatment, by building a special bond with the medical staff and patients and communicating with them in a distinctive way.

Our medical clowns also make a difference outside of Israel. Because of their contributions to the Field Hospital in Haiti and Nepal after the tragic earthquakes, the Israel Defense Forces made the historic decision to formally recognize the work of Dream Doctors medical clowns and draft them as reservists in 2015. These therapeutic clowns now train and respond to natural disasters as part of the medical and humanitarian relief teams.

And because it is important to us that our methods be evidence-based and constantly evaluated for effectiveness, the Dream Doctors Project founded a Research Fund in 2011. So far the fund has supported 35 scientific studies, with the research taking place in various hospitals throughout Israel. Many of the studies have already been published in peer-reviewed academic journals and presented in international conferences.
