Kiwis supporting Ukrainians through Airbnb bookings

From First Up, 5:53 am on 9 March 2022

People devastated by the scenes of destruction and desperation in Ukraine have taken to a new way of getting money to the country's under-seige residents. Thousands of accomodation bookings are being made every day through online platform Airbnb - not that anyone will actuallly be heading there for a holiday anytime soon. Airbnb has waived all its fees for bookings in Ukraine, so all of the money will go directly to the hosts. Joining Nathan Rarere to explain why she got on board with the idea is Auckland resident Julie Rogers.
