Today, RCE NEWS will be supporting Archwell. Archewell was set up by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Megan.
Having watched the programme aired on the ITV on Monday (International Women’s Day) I felt I would look further into the forming of Archewell. And I’m sharing the foundation’s information with the hope of us as a Community learning more about the work being done. Focusing on the good rather than the negative.
Who is behind Archwell ?

The Archewell Foundation
Archewell Foundation is an impact-driven non-profit created by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Our core purpose is to uplift and unite communities—local and global, online and offline—one act of compassion at a time.
The Loveland Foundation, a growing organization that focuses on providing affordable and accessible mental health resources to Black women and girls.
With a robust network of mental health partnerships across the country, Loveland's Therapy Fund knocks down financial barriers to high-quality services and resources. Together,
The Loveland Foundation and Archewell Foundation will continue their shared alignment of supporting marginalized communities.
The Loveland Foundation was established in 2018 by Rachel Cargle in response to her widely successful birthday wish fundraiser, Therapy for Black Women and Girls. Her enthusiastic social media community raised over $250,000, which made it possible for Black women and girls nationally to receive therapy support.
Black women and girls deserve access to healing, and that healing will impact generations.

These Centres will act as emergency service kitchens during times of high-need or disaster, and as food distribution hubs, schools, clinics, or safe community gathering zones during non-disaster times.
