Harry and Meghans Archewell Foundation raised $13m and donated $3m, documents reveal

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Archewell Foundation has raised $13million and donated $3million to other charities, according to official documents.

The causes included one for Covid vaccine equity and making a guide on "fostering positive masculinity".

There was also a donation made towards rescuing Afghan evacuees.

The foundation was established by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in 2020, following their highly-publicised and controversial move to the US that coincided with stepping down from their senior roles in the Royal family.

Archewell Foundation has now released its 2020-2022 Impact Report, which details its efforts in the charity community and contributions.

During the announcement, it was revealed that Archewell helped pay for 12.66 million COVID-19 jabs all around the world.

The project run by anti-poverty charity Global Citizen was designed to help those in poverty to gain access to the same healthcare, as the coronavirus swept the world and affected billions.

The charity's money also helped to re-home 7,400 people from both Afghanistan and Ukraine.

The report itself didn't contain actual accounts, but instead listed where the foundation was sending its donations.

Yahoo News columnist Amid Scobie, an oft-used Sussex reporter, then elaborated on the details of their funds on Twitter.

"In their first year of operation they raised $13million and distributed $3million in grants across areas including vaccine equity, relief centres, refugee resettlement, and building better online world," he wrote.

Some of the other projects handpicked by Meghan to benefit from Archewell's grants included a free hair braiding scheme in Antioch, Tennessee.

She also chose to donate to a play park for local children after she visited the Uvalde massacre vigil.

As well as a number of other groups, gender organisations played a massive part in the Foundation's donations.

One of these was the National Women's Law Center to support women, girls, women of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals in their efforts to live, learn, and work with safety, dignity, and equality.

Over the course of the next year, Archewell is said to be focused on "three main pillars".

It hopes to "build a better online world," restore trust in information, and uplift communities, according to the website.
