“I want to give them stability” British actor Benedict Cumberbatch to host Ukrainian refugees
Benedict Cumberbatch has told Sky News he is waiting for a Ukrainian family to arrive in the UK to live at his property. “I want to give them some stability after the turmoil that they’ve experienced, and that’s within my home,” he said.
The star also revealed he’s been helping other people whose loved ones are fleeing Ukraine with the cost of housing them in the UK.
“I’m working through a wonderful charity called Refugees at Home, which is a great gateway to the government scheme, but also to offering further wider support that’s needed for the psychological trauma that these people are suffering from,” Cumberbatch said. “I would urge people to seek out further help to bolster their efforts, and people are doing an amazing amount — it makes me very proud, very, very proud of our country and very proud of what we can be at our best as a human race.”
