#PayUpFIFA: Migrant Workers Who Delivered FIFA World Cup in Qatar Suffered Harm. Tell FIFA to Pay Up Now.

FIFA and Qatar need to step up and put in place a comprehensive program using a participatory process including workers and trade unions to provide remedy, including financial compensation, that is easily accessible to migrant workers and their families... There is nothing Qatar nor FIFA could ever do to make up for the loss of a loved one, but financial compensation to struggling families for migrant worker deaths will reduce lasting harms. 

Socially conscious players and fans don’t want to be associated with a World Cup built on human rights abuses. Join forces with Human Rights Watch: tell Qatar and FIFA to provide remedy to the victims of abuse. By taking the action below, your email will be sent directly to the leaders of FIFA. 

FIFA has the resources and the responsibility, tell them not to leave victims and their families behind.
