Prince Harry and Meghan Markle helped a Texas women’s shelter whose roof was destroyed in last week’s deadly winter storm.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a donation to replace the roof of the Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support transitional shelter in Dallas, the organization tweeted.
The group said the Royal Runaways’ Archewell Foundation charity will also help meet their “immediate needs”.
Released a photo of the damage that forced women and children to evacuate the shelter on Wednesday, Genesis wrote: “For the first time in more than 35 years, our shelters and temporary shelters have been completely shut down due to burst pipes and power outages. ”
“This gift will not only meet our critical needs, it will also shed light on violence against women and children internationally and let survivors know that they are not alone,” the company’s CEO Jan Langbein wrote in a statement.

It is unclear how much the Archewell Foundation donated.
Buckingham Palace announced on Friday that the couple will no longer serve as working members of the royal family and officially completes the couple’s long-planned “megxit”.
