The charity project United4Ukraine, together with the online accommodation service Airbnb, resumed the program for providing free temporary housing to Ukrainian refugees in Europe.
This is stated in a message on the official United4Ukraine Facebook page.
You can apply for free temporary housing in Europe on the UFU platform in the “Find temporary housing” section.
At the same time, applicants must meet several criteria:
- housing is provided exclusively to families with children
- housing is provided from 7 to 30 days
- accommodation is provided only to persons who have not previously used the services of United for Ukraine
- As the organizers of the action note, earlier as part of the United for Ukraine project, they already helped more than 11,000 Ukrainians fleeing the war to find housing. These are hundreds of families who found temporary shelter and were able to focus on solving other important issues related to moving to a new country.
How Airbnb helps refugees from Ukraine
At the end of February 2022, immediately after the start of Russia’s full-scale military invasion of Ukraine, the Airbnb service announced its intention to temporarily accommodate up to 100,000 refugees from Ukraine in Europe for free. Then all willing homeowners were offered to join the program.
At the same time, the Airbnb service stopped working in Russia and Belarus and then banned Russians and Belarusians from booking accommodation around the world.
