St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Venezuela, in spite of its ongoing economic problems, is keeping a promise to donate fifty "Petrocasas" houses to St Kitts and Nevis.

The houses are being made available by the Nicolas Maduro administration.

A government statement in Basseterre says this follows a recent highly successful meeting in the capital city of Caracas.

Prime Minister Timothy Harris was updated there on the donation of the PetroCasas by Venezuela's Foreign Minister Delcy Rodríguez.

Petrocasas are constructed from by-products of Venezuela's oil refining industry.

PVC panels are fitted together on a concrete base then filled with concrete, steel and iron girders to make the petrocasas.

The houses measure approximately 70 square metres.

A release from the Prime Minister's office says the donation will further fuel the Team Unity administration's ambitious housing plans.
