Israeli medical clowns big hit in southwest China

Numerous Chinese papers last week featured stories about two Israeli medical clowns entertaining young patients in hospitals in southwest China.

The medical clowns, Avital Dvory and Shlomi Golan, were brought to China by the Israeli consulate in Chengdu and performed for children patients, gave lectures and conducted workshops at seven hospitals and two orphanages in the region.

According to the Foreign Ministry, the visits were widely covered in the local press because the concept of “medical clowns” is new to China.
