Irish businesses support Ukrainian refugees with Pryvit.ie

Posted: Tue 22nd Mar 2022

Businesses in Ireland are welcoming Ukrainian refugees with free or discounted goods via a ‘welcome offer’ on new website Pryvit.ie.

Pryvit means hello in Ukrainian. The website was created by waytoB, who build solutions to empower people with higher support needs to travel independently.

It’s been loaded with special offers and discounted goods from Irish businesses including grocery shops, cafés, gyms, pharmacies, and drapery shops. 

For example, Le Comptoir Café is offering free coffee, breakfast or lunch in Donnybrook, Dublin. The Digital Hub, Dublin is offering co-working desk space for three months, to help get businesses back on their feet.

Tech For Good Dublin

The website was launched today by the Tech For Good Dublin community as a not-for-profit initiative. 

“The Tech community in Ireland are horrified by the war in Ukraine and want to welcome those arriving here in such difficult circumstances.

“Pryvit.ie is a simple idea that allows businesses to offer a helping hand through a welcome offer for their goods or services to Ukrainian refugees”, says Máirin Murray, co-founder of Tech for Good Dublin.

“The easiest way for Irish business to help the people of Ukraine is through its core products and services, and I am hopeful that, as it grows, Pryvit.ie will act as a very useful directory of what is available.

"It will also be a testament to the kindness and generosity of the Irish business and tech community”, she added.

The website is a result of a recent Tech for Good Dublin event, Ireland Supports Ukraine, which aimed to mobilise the Tech for Good community to support Ukraine.
