Hospitality technology platform OYO will offer free accommodation to people fleeing Ukraine. The company has thousands of homes across Europe, said the company in an announcement.

Starting with Poland, it has initiated concerted efforts appealing to 600 plus Belvilla home-owners on its platform in Poland, to open their holiday homes to refugees. These stays will be free for refugees who cannot pay for them, and the costs will be borne by the company and its home-owners who volunteer to host refugees. The company will support administratively, and help cover operational expenses incurred by the home-owners.

OYO has also launched a fundraiser campaign
