Airbnb.org is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating temporary stays for people in moments of crisis, sheltering those displaced by natural disasters, offering frontline workers a place to stay at the height of the pandemic and, now, helping Afghan refugees.
The Airbnb community is ready to step up to help as the displacement and resettlement of Afghan refugees in the United States and elsewhere is a significant humanitarian crisis. Airbnb.org infused emergency funding and support to the International Rescue Committee, HIAS and Church World Service to provide immediate temporary stays for up to 1,000 Afghan refugees. The organization worked with partners to place refugees in safe housing shortly after arriving in the United States. Airbnb.org will also collaborate with resettlement agencies and partners to pivot as need demands.
In the last four years, Airbnb.org and Airbnb have connected around 25,000 refugees with temporary housing, and earlier this year, Airbnb.org created a $25 million Refugee Fund to expand its support of refugees and asylum seekers around the world.

The Hotel AMERON Zurich Bellerive au Lac, forged from the collaborative efforts of interior design firm Monoplan AG and other cutting-edge design firms, bills itself as a celebration of the 1920s and ‘30s aesthetic. The story behind it is compelling as the building dates to 1928 and has connections with the early days of Switzerland's movie industry. However, there are several fun Mid-Century Modern and late 20th-century design touches in the public and private areas. Clearly, it's going for the "modern luxury" vibe Millennial and Gen-X business and leisure travelers look for when seeking a quality smaller property with a great location.
