Meghan And Harry's Work With Afghan Refugees Has Not Gone Unnoticed

When it comes to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, public opinion seems to be mixed. According to the New York Post, the couple's popularity has reached an all-time low following their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey and their decision to leave the royal family for life in the United States.


While some of the public may be at odds with the royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to work to improve the lives of people around the world. The couple is heavily involved with charities, including creating their own organization, Archewell, which is named after their son, Archie (via Us Weekly).

The couple shared their charity's mission with a statement. "Together we bring you Archewell. We believe in the best of humanity. Because we have seen the best of humanity. We have experienced compassion and kindness, from our mothers and strangers alike," it read, according to Us Weekly. "In the face of fear, struggle and pain, it can be easy to lose sight of this. Together, we can choose courage, healing, and connection. Together, we can choose to put compassion in action. We invite you to join us. As we work to build a better world, one act of compassion at a time."


Recently, the couple's charitable contributions had been brought to light, showing that they follow Archewell's mission statement, which "drives systematic cultural change across all communities," seriously (per Us Weekly).

Their charity work is award-winning

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, are being celebrated for their important charity work. According to the British publication Tatler, the pair have received an award for their close work with refugees.The couple's Archewell Foundation has worked closely to provide funding to Human First Coalition, a non-profit that supplies humanitarian aid in Afghanistan. Harry and Meghan are passionate about providing a better life for refugees from the country.


James Holt, the foundation's executive director, will accept the award for Meghan and Harry (per Tatler). He released a statement that read, "It's an honor to be recognized by Human First Coalition, whose steadfast work in Afghanistan has played a critical role in delivering much-needed aid and resulted in the successful evacuation and resettlement of thousands globally.
