FOUNDATION FOR PHOTO ART IN HOSPITALS INC
February 17, 2010
I was deeply in pressed by the idea of improving the atmosphere for those who are hospitalized either as outpatients or those admitted for extended periods. I have seen the photos and the way they transform stark, depressing areas into pleasant places. Photos are not just images - they often trigger a good memory and /or pleasant thoughts. They mean different things to different people. They can give hope in times of despair, not only for the patient, but the family members as well.Through the donations of its supporters and the efforts of the founder and board, photo art has been installed around the world in big and small hospitals, for adults and children.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
watching one person's idea with a passion for photography and a desire to better conditions for hospitalized patients develop into a foundation that serves so many all over the world.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
most dedicated to the goal of this foundation. It is based on a simple but very effective idea of enhancing hospital walls with beautiful photos which uplift the spirits of those who suffer, including family members and patients alike.
