The Philnor Foundation
The Philnor Foundation (Reg.Amuta) is an Israeli registered nonprofit association representing the philanthropic activities of the Nordman Family of Switzerland, which operates the Dream Doctors Project in 20 hospitals in Israel. The Philnor Foundation, partnering with the Magi Foundation (R.A.) raises funds in Israel and abroad in the resource development efforts to sponsor the program in coming years, implementing the project and ensuring its continued stability.
Our vision is to implement the Dream Doctors Project in all of the hospitals throughout Israel and to expand our medical clowning services to benefit adults, and not only children and adolescents. We strive to transform medical clowning into an officially recognized medical paraprofessional specialty, with employment standardization and budgeting from the Ministries of Health and Finance.
The Philnor Foundation has also taken responsibility for the recruitment and training of medical clowns, as well as providing professional support and mentoring throughout their ongoing work through wide-ranging professional activities such as seminars, lectures, workshops and more.
The Association is committed to the highest possible professional standards, and supports academic research on medical clowning.
Established in September 2009, the Association's offices are located in Beer Sheva.
The Association has all of the lawfully required documents for tax purposes. To view the documents, click here.
