Ethiopia National Laughter Day 2010

We celebrated this year in Nazret, central Ethiopia, just east of Addis Ababa.

We were treated to a speech from the South African consul, and visit from laughter facilitator Sarah and her son Ciaras (who is 14) from Scotland.

A presentation was made of a painting by Jessica from England who is 19 and who has been hospitalised, who uses laughter as an inspiration. See the youtube clip :

Thanks go to the many supporters and sponsors including: Impact Computers, Yes Mineral Water, Archi Hotel Addis Ababa, Gift Real Estate, Dire International Hotel Nazret, Haset Wholesalers, Holland Car (for the big bus!), and others "showing a commitment to the power of laughter to help increase help and happiness and be a diplomacy pass key to bring people together", said World Laughter Master Belachew Girma.
