Meghan Markle is giving some families in South Africa a special gift from her family to theirs.
The 38-year-old Duchess of Sussex visited the mothers2mothers charity on Wednesday. The Africa-based organization trains and employs women living with HIV as community health workers.
For the visit, Meghan recycled her black Everlane jumpsuit, which she wore in a video for the September issue of British Vogue, pairing the look with Manolo Blahnik pumps and large statement earrings.
Meghan sat down with a group of mothers2mothers moms, bringing them a whole collection of clothes that her 4-month-old son, Archie, has outgrown.
“We just thought that in the spirit of community, what’s so nice is to be able to share the things we have at home as well, so we could obviously make sure anything you needed is provided," Meghan said. "We brought some of the things that my friends and I have used for our kids and Archie.”

ET's royal expert, Katie Nicholl, said the women at the mothers2mothers charity were overwhelmed by Meghan's generosity. "Meghan had come to South Africa with two bags full of clothes that don't fit Archie anymore and some toys that she gave to the mothers at the mothers2mothers charity event," Nicholl shared. "I spoke to one of the mothers, who said she couldn't believe she was sitting there on the mat with the Duchess of Sussex. ...She feels like [Meghan's] a very special, very ordinary person. She's clearly connected. She's made these mothers feel very special."
