In a testament to her commitment to meaningful causes, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has narrated a new charity video.

The video brings attention to the extraordinary work of the Fisher House Foundation. In her narration, Markle shared insights into the significance of supporting military families and the vital role played by organisations like Fisher House.

Fisher House Foundation builds homes where military and veteran families can stay free of charge, while a loved one is in the hospital.

Each Fisher House comprises up to 21 well-appointed suites, complete with private bedrooms and bathrooms. These homes provide families with access to shared amenities, including a communal kitchen, laundry, a welcoming dining area, and living room. 

Importance of Community 

The Duchess has recently returned from supporting her husband at the 2023 Invictus Games in Germany. 

“The Invictus Games show that this growth is about more than what meets the eye,” Markle remarked. Sharing the transformative power of the Invictus Games in the lives of servicemen and women. She went on to highlight the unsung heroes within military families: “The spouse coordinating doctor visits, the children celebrating milestones. The mother, father, fellow veteran, the friend. There is a community near and far, surrounding servicemen and women when they deploy and long after they come home.”

Markle’s heartfelt words underscored the idea that healing and recovery do not happen in isolation but rather within the embrace of a supportive community. She emphasised, “Healing does not happen alone; it takes a village. And it’s for the village.”

The Duchess’ message highlights the interconnectedness of military families and the immense strength that arises when they unite. She expressed how people who truly understand and empathise with the challenges faced by military families is an essential part of the healing process.
