Queen Letizia of Spain presided over a work meeting on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Board of Orphans of the Army at the Military Logistics Residence “San Fernando” in Madrid.
The Army Orphans Board is a private charity association attached to the Ministry of Defense with a purpose to take the children of army Solders and Common Defense Corps, who gave their lives on duty, under its protection, providing them with the necessary support to achieve a livelihood appropriate to their intellectual conditions and personal circumstances.
The origin that is formally considered as the foundation of the current PAHUET is set on October 1, 1871, the date of the first College of Orphans of the Infantry within the Army. The Board of Trustees is governed by a Governing Council and governed by a Governing Board. The PAHUET, consists of nineteen Representations scattered throughout the national territory, which are available in A Coruña, Badajoz, Barcelona, Burgos, Ceuta, Granada, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, León, Madrid, Melilla, Murcia, Palma de Mallorca, Seville, Tenerife, Toledo, Valencia, Valladolid, Vitoria and Zaragoza. On April 15, 1994, Her Majesty Queen Sofía patronized the Board of Trustees.
Next, Doña Letizia met with the Governing Council of the Board of Orphans then she went to the Historical Room to start the meeting where a historical overview and a forecast for the future were made, the activities carried out in the year 2021, as well as the protection and support of orphans, were discussed.
Once the meeting was over, Letizia signed the Book of Honor. Next, She visited the Board Room to have a brief meeting with a representation of protected orphans and some relatives.
