·2-min read

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Archewell Foundation has said it is "honoured" to support two global relief organisations to help those affected by the Turkey-Syria earthquake in February.

Thanks to Prince Harry and Meghan's foundation, mental health organisation, Humanity Crew, is now collaborating with World Central Kitchen's aid workers in the region.

A statement on the couple's Archewell website shared: "With support from The Archewell Foundation, Humanity Crew’s mental health professionals in Turkey, in addition to helping aid workers on the ground, are able to continue their work providing psychological aid to alleviate trauma and shock; training local responders on providing mental health support; running support groups with adolescents; serving families through counselling; and working with non-governmental organizations to ensure culturally competent interventions.

"These two beloved organizations are committed to supporting communities in the region, and The Archewell Foundation is proud to have connected and uplifted them both as they do life-changing work."

In an Instagram post, Humanity Crew expressed their gratitude to the Sussexes' foundation, writing: "We are grateful for the ongoing support of The Archewell Foundation, which has been instrumental in helping us provide critical mental health support to those affected by the recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria."

Earlier this month, Harry and Meghan revealed in their impact report that through their foundation, they've provided 12.66 million COVID-19 vaccines, helped resettle 174,497 refugees, served 50,000 meals to the hungry, and rescued 7,468 individuals from Afghanistan.

The Duke has been in the UK this week to attend a four-day preliminary hearing in his privacy case against the publisher of the Daily Mail. He was joined by his other high-profile co-claimants, including Sir Elton John. See what he had to say when he arrived at the High Court on Monday...
