During a recent interview with the U.K.’s The Sunday Times, Sharon Osbourne has revealed that she and her husband Ozzy are looking to help house Ukrainian refugees on their estate in Buckinghamshire, England.
Sharon said: “I think it’s heinous what [U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson] is doing,” in reference to the red tape related to the process of having U.K. citizens open up their homes to those escaping the invasion and attacks from Russian forces.
Asked if she would be rehoming any Ukrainian refugees, she said she was looking to move ‘two Ukrainian families into the unused properties’ on her country estate. “Ozzy‘s very well known in Ukraine, I think they’d be happy.”
Earlier this month, Ozzy and Sharon shared a video message calling world leaders to pledge substantial support to those fleeing the country.
“We’re standing up for Ukraine,” Ozzy said in the video. “What we’ve seen is heart-wrenching, and we’re answering the call from those on the ground in Ukraine,” Sharon added. “World leaders are meeting tomorrow to decide how much funding they are giving to support refugees. We need them to stand up for refugees everywhere and contribute the billions needed for this crisis.”
Last month, Ozzy and Sharon‘s son, Jack Osbourne, revealed he traveled to Romania to help Ukrainian refugees fleeing the conflict with Russia.
Jack took to Instagram to share several photos including following message: “I’ve been very hesitant about posting this because I didn’t do this for attention and I’m sick of seeing people doing stuff for causes just so they can post about it. I did this because I felt compelled to help and posting a flag or whatever just doesn’t quite feel like enough.
“Last week I returned from an incredibly eye opening and profound trip to Romanian / Ukraine border. I volunteered with a organization called @thirdwavevolunteers We were tasked with providing medical help to special needs orphans who were being evacuated from Ukraine with the help of another NGO,” he continued. “Although while I was there we were unable to get the children out, the NGO have began to evacuate them now, thankfully.
“I saw aspects of humanity at its worst yet also at its greatest. Whilst working along the border I saw waves and waves of refugees, mainly women and children all fleeing their country in hopes of finding safety. Fear and uncertainty was the most common feeling that was being portrayed. The Romanian border was organized and full of resources.
“You can watch the news all day, but it does not even being to portray the real story.
“I’d like to thank the team I was working with, for the sake of security I won’t name them here, but you know who you are.”
