Airbnb offers 100K Ukrainian refugees free temporary housing.
Airbnb announced Monday that the homestay and rental company, along with the nonprofit Airbnb.org, will offer free short-term housing for up to 100,000 refugees fleeing Ukraine in the wake of Russia's attacks on the country. A message posted on the company's website revealed that Airbnb's co-founders - Brian Chesky, who serves as CEO, Joe Gebbia, Airbnb.org's chairman, and Nathan Blecharczyk, Airbnb's chief strategy officer - sent letters to leaders across Europe detailing their plans to support refugees. While Airbnb.org is committing to facilitate short-term housing for up to 100,000 refugees fleeing Ukraine, it will work closely with governments to best support the specific needs in each country, including by providing longer-term stays.
