The son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Jack Osbourne, recently traveled to Romania to help Ukrainian refugees who had fled the country.
Jack Osbourne shared some photos on his Instagram account that include the following caption:
“I’ve been very hesitant about posting this because I didnt 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. 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.”
In these harrowing times, it’s heartwarming to see folks travel and do their best to help others.
Jack Osbourne is among those celebrities who have been on the ground helping Ukrainian refugees who have fled from Russia’s attacks on the country. Along with Jack Osbourne, Machine Head guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka helped to deliver goods to those in need, and Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann also helped a Ukrainian citizen in need of finding a place to stay.
