Support for Ukraine

Cork Chamber is a member of the Cork City Community Response Group, established by the Cork City Council, to assist and provide refugees arriving in from Ukraine with basic provisions and accommodation.


"I am appealing to all members of the Cork business community to support the hundreds of Ukrainian refugees in Cork, most of whom have arrived with nothing but the clothes on their back, so that we may provide them with at least basic necessities to help them transition into Irish life." Paula Cogan, President of Cork Chamber


We are urging all members of the Cork business community to donate to the dedicated GoFundMe page.
