Ramesh left his son and wife behind to live in a squalid camp, working day in and day out under the scorching desert sun to help build a gleaming highway leading to the flagship World Cup Stadium in Qatar. He barely made $1 an hour, but he sent every penny he could back to his family to build their first home.
Then one day his family stopped hearing from him altogether.
Ramesh is just one of over 6,500 migrant workers who’ve died in the years since Qatar was awarded the 2022 World Cup. His death broke their hearts and condemned his family to a life of unimaginable poverty. But this was a preventable tragedy – and together we can help families fight for a sliver of justice.
Already public outcry has made worker deaths part of the World Cup story, and pressure is growing for FIFA to compensate these families for their unbearable loss. With our support for advocacy, ads, legal actions and more, we can help them win this tiny victory in the face of so much pain and heartache. Can you chip a little to stop FIFA profiting from modern slavery?
