Almost 6,000 migrant workers from India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka alone have died in Qatar since the World Cup was awarded in 2010. These figures cover the period 2011-2020.
Just a handful of deaths have been officially recognised as work-related and as a consequence, only a few families have received compensation. 

To highlight these issues the Nepal Scotland Association has organised a photo/art exhibition and screening of a short documentary.

All are welcome to attend the events which are free of charge, however donations to support the NSA’s projects in Nepal would be much appreciated.
