- Harry and Meghan's nonprofit issues new statement
- Archewell giving Ukraine financial and informational support
- Harry and Meghan have previously spoken out about Ukraine
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have stepped up to help the people of Ukraine! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's nonprofit Archewell released a statement on Friday revealing what they are doing to assist Ukrainians during this crucial time.
Harry and Meghan fund direct aid and nonbiased media
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been known for their humanitarian efforts, so its unsurprising to see them getting involved. "As we continue to closely follow the conflict in Ukraine," the organization's statement began, "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and all of us at Archewell have been moved by the work of so many organizations on the frontlines."
It then went on to mention how Archewell has been making donations to charitable organizations like The HALO Trust and HIAS, which are directly providing aid to Ukrainians. Harry and Meghan's nonprofit is also committed to allowing citizens access to unbiased media. The statement also shared that they have also donated to Are We Europe, which offers "accurate, critical information to Ukrainians and the world."
Harry and Meghan first addressed the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia last month, calling it a "breach of international and humanitarian law." They are the latest public figures to donate funds to the country. Actors Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have raised millions of dollars for Ukrainian relief efforts, while Queen Elizabeth II recently made a private donation to a humanitarian organization, which is unusual for a royal to do.
