Laughter brings us together!
Laughter for Everyone
Laughter is a universal language. It brings communities and individuals together. World Laughter Master Belachew Girma calls it a ‘diplomacy pass key’.
Simply because our physiology changes when we laugh, it improves our health and happiness and lowers our stress levels.
