Airbnb To Offer Free, Short-Term Housing to up to 100,000 Refugees Fleeing Ukraine
The company is also working to provide longer-term stays.
The company’s co-founders and Airbnb.org‘s chairman “sent letters to leaders across Europe, starting with the leaders of Poland, Germany, Hungary and Romania, offering support in welcoming refugees within their borders,” as per a press release. The stays will be supported by the Airbnb.org Refugee Fund and the generosity of Airbnb hosts through Airbnb.org, which is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing temporary housing for people in need. Additionally, Airbnb.org will work with governments to help cater to specific needs in each country, as well as aim to facilitate longer-term stays.
