'Refugee Hero' is an innovative platform that is helping refugees meet one of their most basic needs. As Syria's refugee crisis continues to grow, this platform provides a unique way to help refugees find temporary accommodations.

Refugee Hero is similar to Airbnb in that it provides a cross-sector housing solution for those who require temporary accommodations. However, the service differs in that it is specifically aimed at asylum seekers and it is completely free. This means that newly arrived refugees can use the site to find spare rooms to stay in free of charge. These rooms can be listed by home owners or even institutions such as schools and churches. The platform is ultimately designed to make it easier for refugees to connect with those who are interested in providing free accommodations.
