The Airbnb has vowed to provide temporary houses for 20,000 more Afghans worldwide including United States.

The U.S. based company would provide the 20,000 additional temporary houses on top of its previous commitment of providing houses for a similar number of refugees.

“Today, we are proud to share that thanks to the generosity of our Hosts and donors from across the country and around the world, Airbnb.org will have the capacity to go above and beyond its initial commitment to house 20,000 Afghan refugees,” Airbnb said in a statement.

The statement further added ” If demand for housing aligns with supply in communities where refugees are resettling, these new resources could help provide housing for an additional 20,000 Afghan refugees.”

In addition to stays funded by Airbnb, Airbnb.org and donors, 5,000 Hosts on Airbnb have offered to provide free and discounted stays to Afghan refugees, with more Hosts volunteering to support refugees every day, the statement said.

This comes as the need for temporary housing for Afghan refugees has continued to grow, according to Airbnb.

In the US alone, officials estimate 65,000 refugees are expected to arrive by the end of September and as many as 30,000 more in the year to come.
