NONO SAYING (German): “Good morning, it’s nice to see you” German clowns turn frowns upside down in an elderly home Location: Jueterbog, Germany while observing social distancing Clowns from 'Laughing Helps' entertain people under care They usually perform in patients' rooms but have moved their shows outdoors (SOUNDBITE) (German) TIFFY THE CLOWN, TANJA SELMER, SAYING: “We can’t visit the elderly people inside their care homes.

We don’t want to leave them alone though.

We thought, ‘what could we do?’ How could we give them a moment of joy?

Then we got the idea to just do it outdoors.

We’ll go on the balcony, if people can go outside, they can see us and we can bring them closer despite the distance.”
