Map for the Ukrainian community with important information and places in the new home
About the project
What is the project about?
Ignorance of the environment is one of the barriers that refugees have to face in a new country. To help them navigate, volunteers from Česko.Digital in collaboration with Mapotic have created a community map showing all the important places and information they will need in their new home.
Nurseries and schools accepting Ukrainian children, counselling and psychological assistance centres, Ukrainian-speaking doctors and meeting places for refugees in the regions are just a small selection of the many services and places that people in need will be able to find on the map.
The first version works for the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland. We are already working on expanding to other countries so that it can help as many people in as many places as possible. The map is available as a web and mobile app. Currently it has 3 language versions (CZ, UA, ENG).
In the web version of the map everyone can become an active co-creator and contribute new places, describe existing ones in more detail or comment on them. This feature will soon be added to the mobile app as well.
We build the map to be as simple as possible. Each location has an easy-to-understand service icon. The information is easy to filter, so you can always find what you're really looking for.
This is not a commercial project, but a spontaneous initiative to help refugees get to know their new (temporary) home in a foreign country.
And what do the volunteers who have already been involved say?
Tereza Vaisová - marketing coordinator of the project:
"I am very happy and proud to be part of such a great community. What is being created under everyone's hands, at the pace at which all the projects are going now, is unreal! I finally feel like I can do enough to help in what's going on in the world."
Monika Pavlovičová - illustrator and graphic designer of the project:
"It's great that projects like this are being created! Having the opportunity to get involved and help is important to me, and thanks to this community it's also an experience - I never cease to be amazed how it's possible to organize and complete so many useful projects at once. Hats off to Česko.Digital, you are full of great people."
