The name means ‘Hello Cork’ in Ukrainian.
And the staff of a local marketing agency hopes that their new website will help Ukrainian refugees to find all the information and support they need when they arrive here.
Pryvit Cork, which goes live this week, is a bilingual website that will link businesses, organisations and locals offering help to the thousands of Ukrainian refugees who have been arriving on Leeside over the last couple of months.
The site was created by Cork-based Dyjaho, with the help and input from some of the main agencies who are coordinating Cork’s response to the refugee emergency, Cork City Council, Cork Business Association, Cork Chamber of Commerce and local aid agencies.
Information will be arranged in sections, including medicine, transport, English lessons, sport and social and health and beauty.
“As a team, we were really keen to find a way to make a contribution to Cork’s response to this awful situation, something practical, using the skills that we have, and what we came up with was the website idea – a bilingual portal for Cork companies and individuals to publish their offers of products and services and for Ukrainian refugees to avail of them,” said Managing Director of Dyjaho Pat Kierans.
“Hopefully the site will be helpful to those people and businesses who also want to do their bit.”
