Airbnb, a housing search company, intends to provide free housing worldwide for 20,000 refugees from Afghanistan. Airbnb states this in a statement.
It is reported that the company and the Refugee Assistance Fund will pay for housing.
Airbnb noted that this is not the first time they have helped people who find themselves in a difficult life situation. Now “it’s time to help the Afghans.”
“Last week, it became clear that the relocation and resettlement of Afghan refugees here in the United States and elsewhere is a serious humanitarian crisis, and we are ready to step up our action,” the statement said.
The company said it was looking for free housing for the 20,000 refugees who had left Afghanistan.
“Airbnb.org will provide temporary housing to 20,000 Afghan refugees around the world, funded by contributions to Airbnb.org from Airbnb and Brian Cesky, as well as from sponsors of the Refugee Relief Fund,” the company said.
The company also called on the global business community to join forces to support Afghan refugees.
“As tens of thousands of Afghan refugees relocate around the world, their stay will be the first chapter in their new lives. I hope that for these 20,000 refugees, the Airbnb community will not only provide them with a safe place to rest and live, but also a warm welcome in the new home, “said Brian Cesky, CEO and co-founder of Airbnb.
