Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have made charity central to their work on the other side of the pond. As the world watches what’s taking place in Afghanistan and learns of devastating earthquakes in Haiti, the couple took the opportunity to share their thoughts. Fox News reports that the Sussexes took to their foundation’s website calling others to action on behalf of those affected.
“The world is exceptionally fragile right now,” the statement reads. “As we all feel the many layers of pain due to the situation in Afghanistan, we are left speechless. As we all watch the growing humanitarian disaster in Haiti, and the threat of it worsening after last weekend’s earthquake, we are left heartbroken. And as we all witness the continuing global health crisis, exacerbated by new variants and constant misinformation, we are left scared.”
“When any person or community suffers, a piece of each of us does so with them, whether we realize it or not,” the couple wrote. “And though we are not meant to live in a state of suffering, we, as a people, are being conditioned to accept it. It’s easy to find ourselves feeling powerless, but we can put our values into action — together.”
The couple then requested that their followers support various organizations that are helping those in need. Prince Harry founded the Invictus Games in 2014, Town & Country reports, and now, alongside his wife, he aims to help those affected by their time spent in combat and by natural disasters.
