The Chilean Ministry of Housing and Urban Development Minvu O'Higgins, yesterday paid a visit to the Haitian embassy in Santiago, Chile.
The visit of the Minister to the Haitian embassy is part of the agenda being developped by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, to generate alliances in the field of housing for immigrants.
"This objective is part of a set of issues of national relevance in the area of inclusion with which Minvu is working, as are native peoples, people with different abilities, the protection of children's rights and gender equity. " Said Esteban Zamora, head of the Department of Physical Programming and Control of Serviu O'Higgins, who attended as regional director of the service.
In this sense, the professional explained the importance of creating links with different institutions in order to generate real assistance for all these groups through Minvu.
He also added that "right now, we are working on the issue of immigrants living in the O'Higgins Region. For this reason, we have already made contact with the consulates with the largest number of immigrants in the area. "
Thus, the assistant director, along with the professionals of Citizen Participation, already held meetings with the embassies of Haiti and with that of Colombia in Santiago. "Both were tremendously cordial and showed a serious interest, enthusiasm and willingness to work together, and to have a line of constant communication to offer opportunities to access the programs of the Ministry to their fellow citizens in the region," said Zamora.
In this regard, the Colombian consul, Christian Mauricio Rodríguez, said that "The important thing is to recognize the work being carried out by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development with foreigners in Chile. We are interested in the disclosure of your programs and all the plans you have to access your own home in our community. That is why we are willing to create an alliance that will benefit the Colombians in Rancagua and its surroundings. "
It should be noted that during both instances agreements were signed between Minvu O'Higgins and the respective institutions.
"We talked about the intention to disseminate the Minvu programs in the Haitian community and set out to manage contacts with different communities. For his part, Consul Rodríguez invited us to participate in the second Service Fair for Colombians in Santiago. We also have constant communication agreements to develop something similar in, opening the participation to other services that promote the integration of immigrants within their programs, "concluded Esteban Zamora.
