VHeadline.com News Editor Patrick J. O’Donoghue writes: During a visit to Carabobo State, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Frias has been talking about the success of his Mission Negra Hipolita.
Speaking at the Coronel Enrique Guillermo Vogelsang agricultural production center in Belen, Chavez Frias says there are 54 men and five women at the center recovering from a state of abandonment and ready for reinsertion into society.
- The production center is one of nine farms under the administration of the Venezuelan Armed Force (FAN) .
The mission aims to provide integral attention and protection to children and adolescents living on the streets, old people abandoned and living in extreme poverty and pregnant teenagers.
The program also seeks to help persons with physical disabilities, tramps, and all those who are living conditions of social exclude exclusion.
The President is committed to getting rid of misery in all communities.
The production center that Venezuelan President Chavez Frias visited in Carabobo consists of 5700 hectares of land where members of the Negra Hipolita Mission can toil and learn a trade
According to President Chavez Frias, such programs are a direct answer to opposition attacks that he has done nothing to help the street children and people living in misery and abandonment.
The opposition is currently torn between an open spin that Chavez Frias has done absolutely nothing worthwhile in the 8 years he has been in power and a grudging recognition that some social programs have caught on.
