WFAW describe themselves as "a grassroots civil society organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights of disenfranchised Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and New York."

Harry and Meghan's donation comes after the pair discussed the ongoing situation via their Archewell website.

"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," their note began. "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."

"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," the pair continued. "It’s easy to find ourselves feeling powerless, but we can put our values into action — together."

"To start, we encourage you to join us in supporting a number of organizations doing critical work," they suggested. "We also urge those in positions of global influence to rapidly advance the humanitarian dialogues that are expected to take place this fall at multilateral gatherings such as the U.N. General Assembly and the G20 Leaders’ Summit."

The pair finished their message by declaring, "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."
