Airbnb community turns out to support Mandela Day

In conjunction with an ongoing global partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Airbnb staff members and London hosts came together to support Nelson Mandela International Day in London.

Mandela Day — which takes place on the 18th of July every year — commemorates the lifetime of service Nelson Mandela gave to South Africa and the world. Last month, hosts were able to open their homes to support Red Cross relief workers following the Grenfell tragedy.  Continuing on from those efforts, Airbnb staff and hosts from across London used the day to support the Grenfell fire response by helping to sort recently donated items to those affected, at a warehouse in West London.

The aim of Mandela Day is to change the world for the better. To learn more about Mandela Day and see how you can get involved in action on a more regular basis, click here.
