Meghan Markle and Prince Harry address the situations in Afghanistan, Haiti and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expressing their hearts out to all those suffering and speaking out against some of the most troublesome crisis that have taken the world by a disastrous storm since a long time now.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in one of their statements released on the website of their ‘Archewell Foundation’, on Tuesday, August 17, addressed a bunch of problematic situations that have left the citizens of Afghanistan, with Taliban taking over the rule, Haiti, struck by deadly natural disasters including a hard-hitting storm and earthquake, in utmost grief and despair.

The royal couple also talked about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that have been taking lives since two years now.

Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan, 40, began with the speech that reads, “The world is exceptionally fragile right now. As we all feel the many layers of pain due to the situation in Afghanistan, we are left speechless. As we all watch the growing humanitarian disaster in Haiti, and the threat of it worsening after last weekend’s earthquake, we are left heartbroken. And as we all witness the continuing global health crisis, exacerbated by new variants and constant misinformation, we are left scared.”

They continued, “When any person or community suffers, a piece of each of us does so with them, whether we realize it or not. And though we are not meant to live in a state of suffering, we, as a people, are being conditioned to accept it. It’s easy to find ourselves feeling powerless, but we can put our values into action — together.”

Urging citizens worldwide to help fight the ongoing battles and reach out to those suffering and in need, the two shared, “As an international community, it is the decisions we make now — to alleviate suffering among those we know and those we may never meet — that will prove our humanity- The Duke & Duchess of Sussex.”

 

 

The ‘Invictus Games Foundation’ had earlier released a joint statement with Prince Harry on Twitter, on Monday, August 16, that addressed the Afghanistan-Taliban situation and read, “What’s happening in Afghanistan resonates across the international Invictus community. Many of the participating nations and competitors in the Invictus Games family are bound by a shared experience of serving in Afghanistan over the past two decades, and for several years, we have competed alongside Invictus Games Team Afghanistan.”

The statement further concluded, “We encourage everybody across the Invictus network — and the wider military community — to reach out to each other and offer support for one another.”
