0 73

Airbnb, a home rental company, says it is offering free short-term housing to 100,000 Ukrainian refugees fleeing the Russian invasion of their country. Brian Chesky, chief executive officer of Airbnb, announced this in a series of tweets on Monday.

He said the housing would be funded by the company, donors to an Airbnb fund for refugees, and the generosity of other hosts offering their homes. “Airbnb and Airbnb.org are working with our Hosts to house up to 100,000 refugees fleeing from Ukraine for free,” his tweet reads.

“We need help to meet this goal. The greatest need we have is for more people who can offer their homes in nearby countries, including Poland, Germany, Hungary and Romania. If you can host a refugee, go here: http://airbnb.org/get-involved.”

According to the United Nations, about 500,000 people are now refugees since the invasion of Ukraine began last week.
