NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Airbnb launched a new website today with information on how New Haven locals can support Afghan refugees.
Earlier this week, Airbnb announced that Airbnb.org will offer free temporary housing to 20,000 Afghan refugees around the world. Since then, Connecticut locals have been looking for ways to extend their help to the Afghan community.
Existing Airbnb hosts and anyone who is willing to offer available space can sign up to provide free or discounted stays to Afghan refugees. If you can’t open their homes, you can donate to Airbnb.org.
