Joan Mussa (Sr. VP of World Vision): Greetings, my name is Joan Musa and I am a senior vice president at World Vision. World Vision is honored to partner with John Brown University on a real life problem that we are facing around the world. Every day there are disasters and families have nowhere to stay. The emergency shelters are expensive or don’t hold up to the elements. We want to challenge you undergrad students to come up with a solution to that problem- to design an emergency shelter that can be used around the world to help save the lives of people and families affected by disaster. Use the gifts and talents you have to be the solution to a global problem. Good luck and may the best shelter win.
