Las Casas de Chavez

In lieu of this week’s class discussions about Chavez…

Mision Vivienda (Housing mission): a social living project in Venezuela started by Chavez. While these apartments are not exactly the best living conditions those that reside in them are eternally thankful to Chavez because unlike thousands of those in similar socio economic conditions they have a place to live in a good neighborhood.

There are many pros and cons to “mission vivienda” but until 2014 they had given approximately 827 thousand homes to families in need of a home.

All thanks to Chavez.
