VENEZUELA’S housing programme has built 100,000 homes in the last 10 months, according to figures released on Tuesday.

The Mision Vivienda (Housing Mission) initiative begun under late president Hugo Chavez is now putting up low-cost housing at a staggering rate of 200 new homes a day.

Housing Minister Manuel Quevedo said the scheme had constructed a total 752,585 housing units nationwide since 2010, up from 676,000 in January. “At this rate, one million people will be provided with homes by the end of 2015,” Mr Quevedo said.

One of many such “missions” or social programmes in fields such as health and education, Mision Vivienda was launched to provide shelter for people made homeless by the devastating floods that inundated the country in 2010.
