The King and Queen of Spain continued video conferences from their home at the Palace of Zarzuela.
Her Majesty held a video conference with the president of Plena inclusión España (Full Inclusion Spain). The objective of the meeting was to learn first-hand the current needs of the group during the COVID-19 pandemic. Full Inclusion Spain is an organisation that defends the interests of 140,000 people with intellectual or developmental disabilities and their families.
Their Majesties then held a video conference with the heads of the Federación Española de Bancos de Alimentos FESBAL (Spanish Federation of Food Banks). FESBAL is a non-profit association, through volunteers, food surpluses are recovered and redistributed through charities to the most vulnerable people. The heads informed the King and Queen that many people had lost their jobs in March due to the COVID-19 crisis, with more expected in April, pushing additional people into poverty, who will require the aid of food banks.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia later held a video conference with the president and head of the cabinet of the Autoridad Portuaria de Valencia APV (Valencia Port Authority). The port of Valencia is the leading Spanish port in the Mediterranean. The heads reported that all port services are working at 100% capacity, 24 hours a day to guarantee essential products for citizens during the COVID-19 crisis.
