Prince Harry and Meghan Markle help repair storm-damaged women’s shelter

Dallas – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle donated to a Dallas women’s shelter after an unprecedented winter storm left the organization homeless and with damaged pipes.

Genesis Women’s Shelter and Support, a shelter for victims of domestic violence, announced Sunday night that they had received a donation from the Archewell Foundation, a non-profit organization created by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The shelter thanked the couple in a tweet and said the funds received will be used to replace the roof on their transitional home for battered women and help meet their immediate needs.

Genesis Women’s Shelter and Support closed for the first time in 35 years after last week’s winter storm, which cut power across much of the state, including the organization’s apartments and emergency shelter.

Genesis CEO Jan Langbein said the pipes burst and flooded the organization’s school.

With the destruction of the roof, the refugees were relocated to hotels, other shelters and the homes of friends and family.

Genesis said in a tweet on Saturday that the shelter had reopened and that donations have arrived from across the country.
