Extreme heat pushed workers to the limits in Qatar’s World Cup

Qatar has spent ten years and more than $200 billion preparing for the World Cup. The building boom surrounding the event has relied on migrant labourers, mostly from the Philippines, Bangladesh, India and Nepal, willing to work long hours in extreme heat. Thousands have died or faced debilitating health impacts, according to rights groups.

This film, a co-production between Context and TIME, follows Surendra Tamang, a 31-year-old Nepali man who worked for years as a construction worker on a luxury complex in Doha leading up to the World Cup. He came home with kidney failure, which his doctors attributed to heat exposure and chronic dehydration. He will likely spend the rest of his life on dialysis.
