The hotel-alternative housing site Arbnb has announced that it will provide temporary housing for 20,000 Afghan refugees in order to help those fleeing their nation to resettle in new countries. The housing is offered to refugees at no cost. The expense will be paid for by donations from the company, it's CEO Brian Chesky, and contributions to the Airbnb.org Refugee Fund.
Chesky stated that he hopes the provided Airbnb housing will give Afghan refugees "not only a safe place to rest and start over, but also a warm welcome home.”
