German volunteers launch ‘Airbnb for refugees’

A German group named Fluchtlinge Wilkommen, or Refugees Welcome, has built an "Airbnb for refugees" allowing Germans, Austrians, French and soon more Europeans to offer space in their homes to those fleeing wars in Africa and the Middle East.

Airbnb is a website for people to list, find and rent housing, rooms, or apartments. It has over a million listings in over 190 countries.
