Fordham Conversations: Strike a Chord for Emergency Housing

A look at Haiti's emergency housing struggles

WFUV’s Strike a Chord campaign is examining the need for more emergency housing during times of crisis. 

Housing is just one of the major challenges that remain for Haiti, following a 7.0-magnitude earthquake that hit in 2010.  Fordham Professor Dr. Marciana Popescu knows firsthand about the struggles facing the people of Haiti.  She designed a course that takes Fordham students to different countries, where they receive on-site disaster-aid experience.  On this week’s Fordham Conversations, Dr. Popescu shares her knowledge about emergency housing troubles in Haiti and other struggles for the Caribbean country.
