Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky announced the company's decision to provide temporary accommodation for Afghan refugees. The company plans to provide free temporary accommodation to 20,000 Afghan refugees and provide them with accommodation.
The CEO of Airbnb did not specify the exact number that the company has set for the temporary accommodation of Afghan refugees, nor did it specify how long Afghans can use the temporary accommodation facility.
Airbnb is a platform that operates in the field of rental accommodation and users can use its accommodation facilities through a website or mobile app.
According to the United States, approximately 48,000 people have apparently left Afghanistan in recent days, while thousands are still trying to leave Afghanistan. In this regard, the CEO of Airbnb announced the company's plans for free and temporary accommodation for 20,000 Afghan refugees around the world.
Brian Chesky tweeted that Afghan refugees could use the Airbnb platform for free and temporary accommodation. Many Afghans are currently waiting to leave the country at Kabul airport and have gathered in the scorching heat. The Taliban has set a deadline of August 31 (September 9) for air travel, and there are concerns that many who want to leave the country may face difficulties.
In such a situation, Brian Chesky believes that the resettlement of Afghan refugees in the United States and other countries is one of our greatest humanitarian crises and our progress, and has stated that he feels responsible for this and intends to take steps to help Afghans. He hopes the move will inspire other companies to follow suit.
We'll have to wait and see if other companies take the Airbnb approach.
