Czech Government to Launch Mobile App To Help Ukrainians and Other Foreigners
The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (MPSV) is launching a mobile phone app named “Smart Migration”, as part of efforts to help refugees from Ukraine.
The app allows foreign residents to easily find answers in Ukrainian, English and Russian to common situations they need to deal with after arriving in the Czech Republic, including employment, healthcare, and education.
The information will be continuously updated and supplemented. A key feature of the application is a set of interactive tutorials that make it easier to find the necessary information.
The application was created by a team from the university’s Faculty of Business Administration and Economics as part of the “Smart Migration in the Czech Republic” project, in which the Prague Metropolitan University also participates.
The Ukrainian Initiative (UIČR), an umbrella diaspora organisation in the Czech Republic, is also involved in the Smart Migration project.
Prague’s Assistance Centre for Ukrainian refugees will change venue on Thursday morning. The facility has to date been housed at the Congress Centre but is set to reopen at a former bank in the Vysočana district on Thursday morning.
From this Monday, it is possible for people in the Czech Republic who provide free accommodation to Ukrainian refugees to apply for financial assistance. The state will provide CZK 3,000 per person per month to help the hosts meet the costs of putting guests up.
