A statement on the couple’s Archewell website shared: “With support from The Archewell Foundation, Humanity Crew’s mental health professionals in Turkey, in addition to helping aid workers on the ground, are able to continue their work providing psychological aid to alleviate trauma and shock; training local responders on providing mental health support; running support groups with adolescents; serving families through counselling; and working with non-governmental organizations to ensure culturally competent interventions.

“These two beloved organizations are committed to supporting communities in the region, and The Archewell Foundation is proud to have connected and uplifted them both as they do life-changing work.”

Humanity Crew expressed their gratitude to Archewell on Instagram, writing: “”We are grateful for the ongoing support of The Archewell Foundation, which has been instrumental in helping us provide critical mental health support to those affected by the recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria.”


Charles faces hundreds of protestors at Coronation as Republic plan ‘chilling’ dissent

EXCLUSIVE: The anti-monarchy group Republic are aiming to encourage more people to join their thousand-strong crowd protesting at King Charles’s Coronation, as the movement against the Firm becomes more visible.

Republic CEO Graham Smith, speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, also noted the group had seen a boost to their numbers and revenue in recent months, however the Met Police claimed they have not seen a “noticeable increase” in protests against the King.

So far this year Republic has protested at royal visits to Colchester and Milton Keynes, as well as gathering outside Westminster Abbey for the Commonwealth Day service attended by all senior members of the Firm earlier this month.

Mr Smith said they were hoping to demonstrate during the King’s visit to York on April 6 as they prepare for 1,000 anti-monarchy protesters to descend on central London for the Coronation on May 6.

He told the Express: “We’re hoping that our protests will serve to embolden people following the arrests last year which might have had a chilling effect on protest.”

Meghan Markle ‘effect’ in full swing as Duchess proving to be ‘economic phenomenon’ in US

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, appeared in a post by Clevr Blends, a wellness brand the royal invested in, on social media earlier this year. It marked her first moment in the spotlight since the publication of her husband Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir Spare, her return in the form of a video paying tribute to her role in the brand’s growth.

Meghan invested in Clevr, which makes instant ‘superlattes’, in late 2020. And following the brand’s social media post, the Duchess has been praised for her “uplifting” appearance as well as for making “a difference” in her role as a public figure.

Christine Ross and Christina Garibaldi, hosts of the Royally Us podcast, discussed Meghan’s appearance earlier this month.

Ms Ross explained Clevr was one of the Duchess’s “first investments she made post-royal life”.

The brand makes ‘wellness’ coffee, which is said to help with energy, stress and sleep, a product that Meghan “personally” loves.
