With over a decade of experience at Sidnet, Jakub Opara, our CFO, has had many occasions to designate recipients of our monthly donations. This month, Jakub chose two initiatives for us to support financially: a practical and valuable open-source project, KeePassXC, and the Warsaw Hospice for Children, which is a foundation Jakub has been advocating for the past years.
KeePassXC is a free and open-source password manager available on Windows, macOS, and Linux. It is a community-developed fork of the original KeePassX project.
What makes Jakub use KeePassXC to manage his passwords?
- Secure password storage
- Robust encryption algorithms to protect data
- Local storage
- Password Generator
- Browser Integration
“Supporting KeePassXC by contributing code, bug reporting, or donations helps ensure its ongoing development and improvement.”, says Jakub, adding: “It also promotes using secure and privacy-conscious password management practices, which is crucial in an era of increasing online threats and data breaches.”
Warsaw Hospice for Children Foundation
Warsaw Hospice for Children Foundation aims to improve palliative care for children with terminal illnesses by providing care in their homes. It means that young patients can stay in their own homes instead of being in the hospital all the time. Caregivers from the hospice visit them at home.
Since 1994, the foundation has worked to improve the quality of life for these children and support their families. According to Jakub, “the foundation does not promise to extend the children’s lives or reduce their suffering. Instead, it helps them live their final moments with dignity.” The foundation aims to alleviate the physical and emotional pain of the patients. It also organizes fundraisers to provide care at home and supports grieving families.
