HOUSTON (KIAH) The website Airbnb.org has announced that thanks to the generosity of hosts and donors from across the country, the website can help provide housing for an additional 20,000 Afghan refugees if the demand for housing aligns with supply in areas where the refugees are resettling.
In August, Airbnb.org announced it would provide temporary housing to 20,000 Afghan refugees worldwide. To date, 5,000 Hosts on Airbnb have offered to provide free and discounted stays to Afghan refugees, with more Hosts volunteering to support refugees every day.
