South Africa 2004

The Expedition to South Africa was Clowns Without Borders first mission to the region. Four clowns – Jamie McLaren Lachman (Project Coordinator), Elizabeth Turkel, Tim Cunningham, and Jonathan Gunning – participated in the trip which lasted from November 20th to December 12th. They performed 22 times for over 3,500 orphans affected by the HIV/AIDS crisis, working with 16 different local community aid organizations traveling over 5,000 miles through Mpumalanga, KwaZulu/Natal, the Free State, Lesotho, and the Western Cape.

Nepal 2004

The expedition, a return to Nepal by Desastrosus Cirkus and Moshe Cohen was funded by Spanish acrobat Elsa Moreno, who died last year of a blood disease and was a friend to all those participating in the expedition.
The main destination of this expedition were the Bhutanese Refugee Camps located on the South Eastern Edge of Nepal where approximately 110 000 of 150 000 Bhutanese refugees in Nepal live. Returning to a number of NGO’s in Kathmandu was also on the agenda, as well as a trip to the Children’s hospital and the Tibetan Reception Center.

The Balkans 2004

Clowns Yvette Feuer and Bruce Macphail traveled for two and a half weeks in Serbia, Kosovo and Bosnia-Herzegovina doing a total of 27 shows and 16 workshops and reaching just under 2000 children.
We decided to put together this trip to the Balkans in the Spring 2004 and it took 5 months between the time we decided to go and the completion of the trip. Crucial financial support came from the Merdith Russell Travel Grant from Sarah Lawrence College which covered the expenses and the equipment. We are also indebted to support from family and friends to make this expedition possible. For two and a half weeks we did shows and workshops in various locations including schools, orphanages, mentally handicapped homes and refugee settlements.
