The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex, through their Archewell Foundation, are helping provide relief in Dominica. The couple have joined forces with World Central Kitchen to deliver food to those in need in the Caribbean Commonwealth nation.
The partnership is working to set up four Community Relief Centers in areas in the world that are usually affected by environmental catastrophes.
World Central Kitchen published a statement on its website announcing the news.
The statement read: “WCK, in its joint philanthropic partnership with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s nonprofit Archewell Foundation, is developing a series of four Community Relief Centers in regions of the world prone to climate disasters.
“Announced late last year, the intent of these Centers is to provide both relief and resilience – as well as healing and strength – for the communities in which they’re based. In times of crisis, they can be quickly activated as emergency response kitchens, and through calmer times they can serve as food distribution hubs, schools, clinics, or community gathering spaces for families.
“We are excited to share an update that construction on the first of the four Centers in the Caribbean Commonwealth nation of Dominica is complete.
“We are working with local nonprofit RezDM – the Resilient Dominica Project, led by Simon Walsh – and the Ministry of Education to bring the project to life.”
Royal author Omid Scobie shared the announcement with his Twitter followers, prompting a flurry of praise from royal fans.
