Football associations don’t kill people….

…..massive construction projects do.

More than 1,200 people killed in the building of Qatar’s World Cup stadia, the vast majority of them Nepalese. Qatar Airways are one of the few international airlines to have direct flights to Kathmandu. It is truly heartbreaking to watch Nepali men waived off by their loving families heading off to Doha for work. Maybe they have no idea what they are getting into; more likely, they do but have little choice if they want to earn money, living in hope of a better contract and a fair employer.
