The Genesis Women's Shelter & Support announced on Twitter on Sunday that the pair, through their nonprofit Archewell Foundation, were "supporting us by replacing the roof at our transitional housing facility and helping us meet our immediate needs."

Genesis was one of several shelters damaged from last week's storms in the Lone Star State, which left millions without power and led to the deaths of at least 20 people. The shelter, which aids domestic violence survivors, reopened on Saturday after being closed for the first time in its more than 30-year history.

Genesis CEO Jan Langbein told ITK in a statement about the donation from the members of Britain's royal family, "Not only will this gift provide for our critical needs, it shines an international spotlight on violence against women and children, letting survivors know that they are not alone."

The couple told the team at the women's shelter that "their hearts remain with the community, with the families Genesis serves, and with the volunteers and workers on the ground who selflessly provide care and support to those in need," a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told ITK on Monday.
