Spain's Queen Sofia is wrapping up a two-day trip to Haiti, where she has visited aid projects funded by the Spanish government and her own charity.
The queen on Saturday toured the site of a future waste treatment plant and visited a church-run education project in one of the country's poorest neighborhoods.
She also ventured outside the capital to see a project that aims to build 1,500 shelters for people who lost homes in last year's earthquake.
The queen came to Haiti at the invitation of President Michel Martelly.
Haiti was once a French colony and it has not had strong ties with Spain. Martelly hopes the new relations will encourage other countries to invest in Haiti.
