I met this beautiful girl in a refugee camp in Libanon. She was so sweet and very shy, and arrived to the circus show in her beautiful dress…! Many families we met live already for 5 years in tents near the Serian border…The children were up to some circus fun!!!

Emergency-Circus Page:
The days have been packed clowning in the heat for sweet Syrian refugee schools in Lebanon. We teamed up with Clown Me In, a local troupe, to bring big love and laughter really close to the border of Syria. These children lead a harsh life in the dusty heat but were all so full of love for the clowns who came today.
