Each year, at Mumbai Smiles, we welcome a hoard of national and international visitors to our projects. Most of these visitors are our members, donors, collaborators, associates and partners and then there are some who have heard about our organisation through our President and Founder, Jaume Sanllorent’s book – Sonrisas De Bombay. And we feel extremely happy to say that many of our visitors become our supporters, either monetarily or by becoming an ambassador of our work.

Today, we want to talk about this one regular visitor and our amazing collaborator, Monica Santos. A professional clown, Monica and her colleagues are amazing at their work and their aim is to bring smiles and happiness in the hearts of their audience.
Based in Barcelona, Monica is a regular collaborator with our Spanish team, Sonrisas De Bombay, and this year she visited the Indian office (Mumbai Smiles) for the third time in last five years!
Visiting our various Preschool Education Centres, Monica performed some extremely fun clown routines which not only made all the kids and the teachers laugh their heads off, but the kids also learnt the names of colours, animals, birds etc through her fun act!
Post the Preschool centres, Monica also visited our 1000 Hands centre, LSE centres, one of our HOPE partner hospitals on an event, during the course of a week.
Coincidentally, her visit fell during the Diwali week and during our office celebrations, she also created a fun act even for our team members and it was a superhit event!
Thank you so much Monica for being an ardent selfless supporter of Mumbai Smiles and Sonrisas De Bombay. We hope to continue this association for eons to come and we can’t wait to have you back with us soon enough !!
