Pictures: Clowns Without Borders entertain kids worldwide for 20 years

The exhibition Miles of Smiles features images from the organisation’s performances around the world

CLOWNS WITHOUT BORDERS this week celebrates 20 years of travelling around the world entertaining children in crisis zones.

The organisation has travelled to areas of poverty or conflict such as JordanSudan, and Brazil to perform and entertain.

After it was founded in 1993, individual Clowns Without Borders groups have been set up around the world, including one here in Ireland.

An exhibition which opened this week in the Irish Aid Building on O’Connell Street, Dublin, showcases their work over the past two decades.

Have a look at a selection of images from the Miles of Smiles below, a collection of images taken over the years by photojournalists. You can also visit the exhibition yourself until the end of August.
