GNU Solidario and Free software

2 July, 2020

I first heard about NU Solidario when I was presenting at the ICMCC (International Council of Medical Compunetics) in Amsterdam in 2016. Since then I have attended a number of their workshops in Gran Canaria. I have cc'd Luis Falcon who is the director of GNU Solidario.

"GNU Solidario is an Non-for-profit organization that works globally, delivering health and education with Free Software. Since 2006 we have been involved in humanitarian projects of different nature that had one thing in common: Free Software.

Our main points of interest

Luis Falcon, president of GNU Solidario, founded the organization with one goal : To deliver

Health and Education with Free Software. Health and education are basis for development and dignity of societies. These are just some of the activities and projects we do:
