This image and its subject caught my eye as being a mixture of odd and interesting elements. I find it intriguing that as well as doctors traveling to countries in need to offer their services for free, clowns have also joined the ranks of ambassadors working to bring a smile to those who might need one. This patient doesn't look like she's so sure about their efforts.
Clowns Without Borders perform for a patient at the Doctors Without Border's hospital in the slum of Cite-Soleil in Port-au-Prince, Friday, Aug. 31,2007. Clowns Without Borders, a group that brings comic relief to conflict-torn areas around the world, visited the impoverished country's largest slum, entertaining patients at a hospital that only a year ago was seeing several gunshot victims each day.
