Nordic Choice also offers to cover refugees’ meal costs
The billionaire owner of the Nordic Choice Hotels chain is offering 5,000 nights in his properties to refugees who cannot find places in asylum centres.
“We are offering 5,000 nights to refugees who need it,” Petter Stordalen wrote on Twitter. The migrant crisis facing Europe “concerns absolutely everyone,” he explained to Norwegian news agency NTB.
He added that he would also cover the meal costs of refugees who stay at his hotels. The Norwegian migration board UDI is considering the offer.
The board says the number of asylum requests may reach 16,000 for 2015, compared to 11,480 in 2014.
