Website launched to provide Ukrainian refugees with information and offers of help

A NEW website, www.pryvitcork.ie, has been launched with the aim of providing a one-stop information center for Ukrainian refugees arriving in Cork.

Live this week, the website will provide links to information and offers on jobs, housing, education, local sports clubs, aid organizations and lots of practical information about living in Ireland.

The website makes it easy for businesses and individuals to upload offers of products or services that they would like to make available to those fleeing war in Ukraine.

Pryvit Cork stands for ‘Hello Cork’ and the bilingual website, for now, focuses on the Cork region and will connect businesses, organizations and locals offering help to the thousands of Ukrainian refugees who have arrived over the of the last two months.

The site was created by Cork-based marketing agency Dyjaho, with help and input from some of the main agencies coordinating Cork’s response to the refugee emergency, Cork City Council, the Cork Business Association, Cork Chamber of Commerce and local help. agencies.

Commenting on the project, Dyjaho Managing Director Pat Kierans said: “As a team we were really keen to find a way to contribute to Cork’s response to this terrible situation, something practical, using the skills what we have, and what we came up with the idea for the website – a bilingual portal for businesses and individuals in Cork to post their product and service offerings and for Ukrainian refugees to take advantage of.

Hopefully the site will be useful to people and businesses who also want to do their part.

The Cork Business Association (CBA) supports the initiative.
