We realized we had a similar vision and together we founded Videre.” Speaking of his hopes for Videre est Credere and their future projects, Uri said:
“Our vision is a world where no human rights violation goes unseen or without remedy. Videre has big ambitions for the future and several new projects in the pipeline, but for security reasons we can’t discuss them, sorry…”
