Every Wednesday afternoon I go to the Durand Hospital along with other clowns to visit the 3rd floor of adult hospitalization. Today Tuesday 27-06-2017 we were in an activity together with a choir of grandparents and three musicians singing and dancing in the sixth floor of the same hospital, where the patients are of geriatrics. I also participate in the social project of the school of clowns of Espacio Aguirre (Palermo, Buenos Aires) with which we are representing a play of clowns, to places far from the city, neighborhoods lacking among others. This is my way of expressing love to others from joy and sharing. I belong to C.C. United Nations. I thank URI for the possibility of making a short trip (August) to the province of the Chaco, where I will visit five rural schools in the Toba community and from the group game to be able to transmit URI values such as unity, love, fellowship , cooperation and brotherhood among many others. I will also give an intensive course of hospital clown in the cultural center of Pampa del Indio (Chaco) so that the hospital has its own stable group.
