While the war between Russia and Ukraine continues unabated; A very good news came from Airbnb, especially for those who had to leave their homes due to the attacks. It has been announced that 100 thousand Ukrainian citizens will benefit from this campaign, which is specially made for those who will go abroad! For those who want to stay both short-term and long-term but don’t know what to do, Airbnb gave the good news.
While Ukraine is trying to resist Russia’s attacks; Russian invaders, on the other hand, started targeting innocent civilians. While thousands of people continue to die in blood on the streets of Ukraine; Those who had to leave Ukraine, where they knew their home for years, started to set off without knowing where to go. The main reason for this is that the Russians are targeting houses without mercy.
Airbnb Chief Executive Officer Brian Chesky and the head of the company; He forwarded a letter to countries close to Ukraine, such as Poland, Romania, Germany and Hungary. Announced that they can stay in Airbnb accommodation centers in these countries. Airbnb, which opened its aid to the fullest without seeking any terms and conditions, helped refugees settle, stay and in many other matters after the Taliban’s capture of Afghanistan last year. Touching the lives of more than 21 thousand Afghans, Airbnb took a step for Ukrainians this time.
How is Airbnb Accommodation?
According to the latest data, the number of Ukrainians who had to leave their homes due to the war, or rather to protect their lives, exceeded 300 thousand. Some Ukrainians somehow found shelter, a place to stay, but not everyone was so lucky. On top of that, Airbnb cooperates with non-profit organizations in the European Union; It will allow Ukrainians to breathe a sigh of relief.
The only thing that asylum seekers have to do is to find the closest contracted place around Airbnb or to get help from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. No fee is required for Airbnb, which shows that Ukrainian citizens are with them in their hard times. All you have to do is indicate that you need accommodation. You can stay in companies that Airbnb has a contract with, whether for a long or a short time! Please announce this campaign of Airbnb to those who do not know and help the Ukrainians!
