Mission Bases to be social productive development tools in communities

Social Mission Bases are shaping as the core of five great revolutions in the new phase of the revolutionary process, since they are engines to develop social productive projects in 1,500 prioritized communities nationwide.

“A Mission Base must be a place of integration for labor and to take care of the needs found through integral diagnosis methods,” said Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro, opening a Social Mission Base in central state of Carabobo on Thursday.

Social Mission Bases are special attention points that group together various social programs in areas where extreme poverty still prevails, in order to meet the basic needs of these communities. They house government social programs such as free community food kitchens, subsidized food stores, and free medical clinics.

A total five Mission Bases were opened in states Bolivar, Monagas, Aragua, Carabobo and the Capital District, seeking to make them social productive centers to eliminate poverty by 2019, attending health, feeding, social and educational needs.

In this connection, president Maduro emphasized positive results reached through social programs in an attempt to reduce extreme poverty to zero, adding that it has significantly reduced from 10.8 per cent in 1998 to 5.5 per cent in 2013.

Also on Thursday afternoon, the President took part on the opening of a mission base in Aragua state, where he commented that to boost the social productive nature of 1,500 attention points, they will have Mercal food stores to guarantee people’s access to food subsidized by 80 per cent.

Other 1,500 bases are going to be built in Great Housing Mission Venezuela complexes nationwide. Their goal is to provide basic services in urbanized areas that still need spaces for education, culture and health.

First base in Caracas

The first out of 13 Social Mission Bases was opened in Caracas last Thursday, adding up to other four previously set up in states Carabobo, Aragua, Monagas and Bolivar.

“Through it, what we do is to destroy extreme poverty, we are going to build socialist peace and make the Revolution reach every space,” said Capital District governor Jacqueline Faria, at a satellite communication while leading the opening.

President Nicolas Maduro informed he would award the first three states that achieve the goal of social mission bases with the approval of more special works.

The first state achieving the goal will be prized with resources for five important projects, the second with three and the third with one project. States closer to achieve the goal are Aragua, Portuguesa, Zulia and the Capital District, he said.

Freeing, Chavista revolution

Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro underscored the bolivarian nature of the revolution started by commander Hugo Chavez and which adds up to 15 years of social achievements for the population.

“When we say ‘Chavez lives on, the homeland goes on,’ it means ‘Bolivar lives on, the homeland lives on.’ Today, we have a homeland, but above all we have the idea of homeland, project of homeland. We have only one path, that walked by liberators because independence is only one. We came to walk the same route of liberators,” said Maduro.

The President stressed as well that revolutionary and Chavista people are consolidated as a great social, spiritual, cultural and political strength of the 21st century.

Thus, he remarked that 55 per cent of the Venezuelan population “assume themselves as Chavista,” according to a recent survey conducted in eight months.
