The Queen Doña Sofía of Spain arrived in Haiti yesterday afternoon, upon arrival at the Toussaint Louverture International Airport, she was greeted by the President of Haiti, Michel Martelly, the First Lady, Sophia Martelly and dozens of young schoolgirls.

"Haiti is a special country for me", "Haitians come from the heart", "Now, and for all time, Mr. President, Haiti can count on Spain and all Spaniards" declared the Queen Sofía of Spain at a dinner hosted by the President of Haiti.

The Queen must today travel to Léogâne to inquire about the progress of a project of 1,500 homes that are built by the Haitian Red Cross, in collaboration with the Spanish Red Cross and the AECI.

We just learned that the Queen will also visit Gressier, about 15km from Leogane, to inaugurate the Salesian College built with funds from the Salesian Mission and the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (AECI).

This educational center will be attended by children and youth of the rural population living nearby.
