The Decent Housing Program benefited the protagonist Julia Rivera Martínez, 77, who lives in the Hugo Chávez neighborhood. The delivery of the Rivera family's new home was made in commemoration of the 42nd anniversary of the National Literacy Crusade.
Doña Julia, accompanied by her children and neighbors, received her new home, number 70 being built in this neighborhood, at a cultural gala enlivened with children's activities.
Rivera is one of the founders of that populous neighborhood in the capital, where more than 8 thousand people live. The protagonist for more than 21 years faced the ravages of nature, a situation that deteriorated her previous home, which put the safety of her entire family at risk.
“I am happy, the Sandinista Revolution has come to transform the lives of many families, including ours, before I had an old house, the water seeped through the roof and from the bottom and several times our belongings were damaged as a result. Despite that, however, today we are happy and grateful to God and the President for this beautiful gift,” said the protagonist.
