SAN FRANCISCO

Airbnb opened the doors of its properties to 20,000 Afghan refugees globally Tuesday and sought assistance from hosts who rent property through the home-sharing company for more free housing for those fleeing the crisis.

Wow!  Airbnb is volunteering their hosts' empty accomodations be loaned out during this neverending  pandemic. Who will be able to build their brand image? Who is getting free advertising? Who is appearing to be corporately responsible? Who will be bearing the brunt of the expenses and any other headaches? Who wasn’t this cleared with first?

This will just add fuel to the new migration crisis. There was always going to be a migration crisis after the pandemic ended because the entire Middle East (Africa to Pakistan) is in a worse position economically and politically than during the Arab Spring, but Afghanistan will probably be the poster child.
