Hotels in the Hannover region: 1,400 beds for refugees
Hannover (dpa / lni) – The hotels in the Hannover region want to provide around 1,400 beds for the accommodation of war refugees from Ukraine. This is the result of a survey conducted by the German Hotel and Restaurant Association (Dehoga) in the Hannover region. By noon Friday, 57 hotels had indicated their willingness to offer rooms for those seeking protection. This is a great sign of solidarity, Dehoga Hannover CEO Kirsten Jordan said in a statement.
According to the information, both smaller companies and larger hotel chains want to participate, for example from Garbsen, Burgdorf, Laatzen and Langenhagen. “In light of the terrible tragedy, we want to and will do what we can to help,” said Anja Leisegang, a Dehoga board member.
On Thursday, after a round table with representatives of the housing industry, welfare associations, the refugee council and municipalities, Lower Saxony’s construction minister Olaf Lies (SPD) called for housing and apartments to be provided for refugees.
