In the article, “AirBnB Provides Housing for Afghan Refugees’’ (McGraw Hill) I learned that Airbnb, which is an American rental company, is housing thousands of refugees who are fleeing from Afghanistan. The reason they are leaving Afghanistan is because of the huge crisis with the Taliban that broke out. These individuals are feeling in fear for their lives, hoping to save not only themselves but their families as well. There are hosts who are funding the shelter in which these individuals are staying. There is also a funding page where people are donating money to help these people in need in any way they can.How long do you think the shelters will be provided?
I think that the fact that these individuals are being provided with a place to stay is such a generous thought. It is amazing to see that there are people in the world who actually care enough about the lives of others, that they are willing to set up these shelters to help them. It must feel welcoming to see so many people wanting to help you, if you were one of those people in need.
