  • Global Empowerment Mission [GEM] aims to provide grassroots efforts with a large institutional impact for the most vulnerable populations affected by disasters around the world. Currently on the ground in Hungary, GEM is using the support of Airbnb.org to provide housing to African students who are fleeing Ukraine.
  • EURORDIS is a non-governmental patient-driven alliance of patient organisations, representing 995 rare disease patient organisations in 74 countries. With the support of Airbnb.org, it will be coordinating with the medical care provider community, to connect patients with a wide range of rare diseases who are fleeing Ukraine to housing.
  • Planting Peace is a global nonprofit organisation that was founded with the purpose of spreading peace through humanitarian and environmental initiatives, ranging from a network of orphanages and safe havens in developing countries and rainforest conservation efforts in the Amazon to LGBTQIA+ rights advocacy and Equality House and Transgender House. The organisation is currently on the ground at the border of Poland and Ukraine delivering aid to refugees, with a particular focus on those with nowhere to go, no family to offer them safe, long-term housing or those with pets.
