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.
