Honoured to have been elected unanimously by @fsfe 's members to serve another two-year term as president.

Looking forward to work together with Heiki, Patrick and all the other @fsfe contributors for !

This sounds like great steps towards collectively establishing safe and transparent community standards, empowerment of users and a web of trust: "We want you to not just see who was blocked, but why. "

Happy to be here on !

It is called cadus.org

Since many years already, CADUS helps and provides healthcare in Northern , in Rojava, Raqqa, Al-Hawl. And they still do!
