Queen Letizia Visits Honduras
The Queen of Spain spent the day in Honduras, the first country of her maiden co-operation trip to South America. The purpose of the trip is to visit projects that are developed using Spanish funding.
During the day, Queen Letizia attended a meeting with the Technical Cooperation Office, run by the Spanish Cooperation Agency, which coordinates and monitors the programs and projects developed. The meeting was also attended by representatives of non-governemnent organisations and international organisations that operate in Honduras.
She later visited the free legal clinic at the Autonomous University of Honduras that receives assistance from Spain to fund their capacity for professional training and research. The clinic provides free legal advice to those without resources, particularly victims of domestic violence. The First Lady of Honduras, Ana Garcia de Hernandez, accompanied the Queen on her visit.
The last part of the Honduran leg of the trip was a visit to the town of Comayagua, where Letizia inspected monuments that have been restored, a workshop school and the town’s water and sanitation project. Spain has provided support to the town since 1996.
In the evening, she travelled to El Salvador where she will spend the next two days.Filed under Spain
