The Queen of Spain is currently on a Cooperation trip to the Republic of Paraguay from the 2nd-4th November. During the visit, Her Majesty will learn about the work that the Spanish Cooperation develops in the areas of health, education, culture and women.
Queen Letizia began the second day with a working meeting at the Technical Cooperation Office (OTC) which covered a range of topics including; hunger, social welfare, quality of education, trafficking, drinking water and sanitation. The meeting was followed by a tour of the facilities.
Subsequently, the Queen travelled to Encarnación to visit the Comprehensive Health Care Centre for Women, where she received explanations of the Hispanic-Paraguayan cooperation in the prevention and treatment of cervical and breast cancer, with special attention to the most vulnerable groups (rural and indigenous population).
Afterwards, Her Majesty toured the Encarnación Workshop School, which aspires to improve the quality of life of vulnerable young people (aged 16 to 23) of Encarnación through comprehensive training, technical training and job placement in the tourism and construction sector.
In the afternoon, Her Majesty joined the First Lady of Paraguay in Trinidad to visit the Jesuit Missions of Trinidad del Paraná and Jesús de Tavarengue. They are part of a series of 30 Missions in the Río de la Plata basin established by the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) during the 17th & 18th centuries. Both Missions have received support from the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) for the restoration and improvement of accessibility for people with disabilities. In 1993 the two Missions were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
For today's engagements, Queen Letizia wore slim olive jeans with her white Imiloa 'Orchid' Shirt and Panama Jack 'Phoebe' Boots.
In the evening, Her Majesty visited the Spanish embassy in Asunción to hold a meeting with the Spanish ambassador to the Republic of Paraguay and the Spanish cooperation.
