-I am a caregiver with a special concern for the welfare of people actively engaged in the defense of a good fair world. Hackers-who-care,​ human rights activists and lawyers, investigative journalists,​ many others without a "​profession",​ and whistle-blowers. People whom I would also like to call caregivers. From what I know, these courageous individuals tend to be an overworked ​minority, to often give a lot of themselves physically and psychologically,​ and to become the targets of ill-treatments by the systems of power they disturb - as a result of which they suffer. Some of them burnout, some are imprisoned or experience different forms of restrictions on their freedoms and abuse of their rights. Some die. +I am a caregiver with a special concern for the welfare of people actively engaged in the defense of a good fair world.

 There is not much that I alone can do in the face of so much pain, but I still intend to do it, fueled by echoing convictions and gratitude. With the collective initiative Hacking With Care, of which I am part, we hope to be be able to achieve yet a bit more in bringing a variety of care to these people as we go along, and hopefully inspire others to do the same. There would be more to be said about that. For now what I would like to do is to simply describe what it is that I do, the benefits my actions can have for the well-being of the people I have mentioned in their specific contexts. I hope that my brief description can speak for itself and illustrate the importance of such care finding its way to them.  There is not much that I alone can do in the face of so much pain, but I still intend to do it, fueled by echoing convictions and gratitude.
