From the first time Elaine Poggi opened the trunk of her car to show us her beautiful photographs and shared her vision for the Foundation of Photo Art in Hospitals, we have been fans. Our local hospital has benefitted from the Foundation’s work and we have observed the difference colorful photos make when they are introduced in the monochromatic, sterile hospital environment. Far more remarkable, however, is the difference made in the lives of people. The patients, their friends and family, and the hospital staff can all escape the worry and pressure of the hospital atmosphere when they see the colors and images on the walls. The photos add beautiful points of focus that help patients to think of places or things beyond themselves and hope for a better time. The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals is truly making the world a better place and it’s doing it one photo at a time.

Gorgeous art and wonderful operation. We have used these generous services for several hospitals in East Africa. The children, caregivers and other patients all loved the photos in Rwanda and Tanzania.

I have known Elaine Poggi personally for many years. I have seen and worked with her as she shared her talents and dedicated herself, wholeheartedly and unselfishly, to the children's ministry, music ministry and adult education in our church. By creating the Foundation for Hospital Art, she continues to extend her artistic abilities and charismatic personality - through untiring, world-wide travels and contacts - to bring beauty, joy and tranquillity to those who are suffering,

With only one project to date, I've seen Photo Art in Hospitals perform with the integrity and the professional acuity of what we hope for in the largest non-profits. As a donor I have all the faith in the world in this charity to follow through with their mission statement, and thus recommend to other potential donors without hesitation.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

...beyond reproach in their commitment to following their mission statement. Above all that pervaded every discussion, every action, every decision along the way, and it is that which convinced me I was with the right charity.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

...fulfill it's mission to truly reach those in need of healing by being visually surrounded by the art of us photographers.

I am the founder and president of the Foundation. We have been active since 2002. I have met so many people and created amazing friendships through the years with patients,their families, volunteers, doctors, nurses, hospital auxiliary members, and hospital adminitrators. It was been very rewarding for me to see how my photos and the photos of our Contributing Photographers have made a difference in the lives of these people. I can't think of anything that I would rather be doing!

I volunteered to distribute photo arts donated by this group to hospitals in Ankara - Turkey. The Foundation mailed through the UPS some (36 framed 53X72 cm) photographs that I chose from their website to my home address at no cost to me and here is the list of hospitals that I distributed the photos: The first hospital that I gave some photos was dedicated to rehabilitation of soldiers who lost basic body parts to mine explosives or deliberate gunshot. These young men are locked inside their wheelchairs; they lost their future and their numbers reach to thousands. There were also some patients who walked around with white canes. They could not see the photographs, but must have heard the cheerful voices of other youngsters around them. Just like thousands of other civilian day patients, I go to this hospital from time to time for physiotherapy treatment on my aging knees. The next hospital that I donated some of these photos was the Oncology Hospital in Demetevler district of Ankara. They hang these photos to the large saloon where hundreds of patients receive treatment each day. Since many patients came from nearby villages, they spend with their care givers long hours at the very large waiting room, so I donated a second batch for that room - mostly farm and nature scene photos. The children’s ward of the Social Security Hospital received my next batch of photo donation. They had recently renovated the building, so they cheerfully hang the photos on the freshly painted walls. I also gave another batch to their old age section. I gave another batch to the cancer floor at the women’s ward of Ankara University Hospital. While I was inspecting the walls suitable for the photos, a young new patient arrived to check into her room carrying a small suitcase. I cannot explain the feeling I had, during the nice conversation I had with her. The whole experience was therapeutic for me too – a mother trying to overcome the loss of her young daughter.

As a donating photographer, healthcare professional and family caretaker, I was astonished when I learned about this organization. To be a part of this non-profit is very, very dear to my heart. Elaine Poggi's vision is beyond measure, as is her heart. To be providing clinics and hospitals worldwide, with donated art, in order to help improve the poor conditions patients endure, speaks volumes. So many countries and their facilities are in need. Whether it's a birthing ward, cancer center, dialysis, these patients are given a visual means of comfort and peace, love from strangers, hoping to make their experience better. She has found a way to help the world's sick, that's beyond the dollar bill. It goes much deeper. Giving of her talents and others to clinics in need, on an emotional level, streaming feelings of peace, hope and beauty has and will continue to give strength and love to all that see this amazing organizations work. So many clinics are poor, rural, cold sterile places..their patients left with barren walls, or worse. There are no limits to this organization and the movement to change what we can, for all our people, wherever they live, whatever their plight. Through her foundation, we will reach out and give our brothers and sisters HOPE/LOVE/PEACE through our art.

After building our new hospital here in Rooks County Kansas, we realized the great impact art has on healing. The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals, Inc. was so generous to provide beautiful photography that has helped our patient's, their family and friends and our staff realize the power of art and imagination. The gifts from this incredible foundation continue to touch peoples lives daily and has encouraged great artists from our area become interested in this powerful philathropic model. We had a patient who verbalized so honestly what the photo's have done for her. "I have had such misery and pain in my life the last few years, these pictures help me escape from those moments and help me become stronger." This foundation makes a very meaningful difference in the lives of many.

Elaine Uchtman Poggi started this admirable foundation some years ago, utilizung her own especially beautiful photographs to enliven normally sterile hospital rooms, corridors, and waiting areas. Her exceptional photographs of both scenery and people are now cheering patients and visitors in many parts of the world. One wonders why someone didn't think of this project before. All praise to Elaine Poggi... Horace Gibson
