Harry e Meghan are among the 100 personalities chosen by the magazine Time as the most influential of the year, due to the work of their foundation, Archewell, and the different social causes in which they are involved.
The text on the Dukes of Sussex was in charge of the chef Spanish Jose Andres, a choice easily explained by the fact that they have already worked together, for an important reason. Last spring, the three joined forces through their organizations – Archewell, two Dukes of Sussex, e World Central Kitchen, do chef – and opened a new Community Aid Center in India, one of the countries that was most affected by the pandemic and consequent crisis it brought.
“The purpose of these centers is to bring relief and resistance, as well as healing and strength, to the communities in which they are found”, said Harry and Meghan then. Under normal conditions, these centers serve as food distribution points, but they can also have the purpose of installing temporary schools or clinics, if the population so requires.
“They turned compassion into accomplishments through their Archewell foundation. They have given a voice to those who do not have it through the means; collaborated with non-profit organizations and took risks to help communities in need, providing psychological support to black women and girls in the United States, and nurturing those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean. In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, dukes show compassion for people they don’t know. They don’t just opine. They run towards the fight”, wrote the chef Spanish.
José Andrés owns a restaurant empire in the United States and has been directing the World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization that tries to combat food shortages in countries that have suffered devastating humanitarian crises. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the organization has taken on the task of organizing and mobilizing cooks around the world, having managed to provide more than 25 million meals.
