Airbnb dispensing NY-area housing for Afghanistan refugees

The philanthropic branch of Airbnb (Airbnb.org) has partnered with homeowners to provide temporary housing for families fleeing the Taliban and coming to the U.S.

Refugees from Afghanistan could soon be your new temporary neighbor!

The goal is to be able to host up to 20,000 refugees around the world; in the U.S. those locations include California, New York and Virginia.

“Airbnb.org’s work with Afghan refugees would not be possible without the guidance and support of our non-profit partners,” Joe Gebbia, Airbnb co-founder and chairman of Airbnb.org, said in the statement. “We are proud to work alongside the Afghan Coalition and Women for Afghan Women to extend a warm welcome to Afghan families resettling in the U.S.”

Women for Afghan Women is a grassroots organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights of disenfranchised Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and New York. Over the last several months, WAW has worked to help resettle refugees fleeing the conflict in Afghanistan. Support from Airbnb.org will help the organization provide temporary housing to Afghan refugees arriving in the New York metropolitan area.

“Airbnb.org’s support will help us provide Afghan women and girls a dignified beginning as they start to rebuild their lives in the U.S.,” Naheed Samadi Bahram, U.S. director at Women for Afghan Women, said in the statement. “Women for Afghan Women will be there with them, side-by-side, until they can stand on their own.”

Airbnb’s effort to help house Afghan refugees is being coordinated with several U.S. resettlement agencies, including Church World Service, Ethiopian Community Development Council, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, International Rescue Committee, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and World Relief Corporation.
