From January 27th to February 9th 2014 CWB partnered with Plan International in the Philippines for a second time. The first tour, made during the 2013 holiday season, reached over 13,000 children and families recovering from Typhoon Haiyan. For this second project a group of 5 clowns led two intensive workshops for a total of 80 youth (ages 17-36) over 6 days. The workshops focused on performance building skills and ways to share stories through the arts. The clowns also performed for communities in East Samar, Tacloban & Leyte.

Clowns Without Borders partners with Plan International and CWB Australia to provide shows and laughter for the Philippines over the Christmas Holiday. The clowns performed in some of the worst hit communities following Typhoon Haiyan. Michael O’Neill, Matthew Poki McCorkle, Briar Seyb-Hayden (from CWB Australia), and Jpeace Love Circus comprise our side-splitting team. We are thankful to these artists for volunteering to share their holiday season with our neighbors in the Philippines.
