Qatar ships World Cup portable homes to quake-affected Turkey

Qatar has sent 400 temporary homes – used to house fans during the 2022 World Cup – to help those affected by the devastating Turkey-Syria earthquakes.

Some two million people are living in temporary shelters after the earthquakes on February 6 left more than 50,000 people dead in Turkey and neighbouring Syria.

Two ships have arrived in the city of Iskenderun with 400 portable homes, with Qatar’s ambassador to Turkey saying more are on the way.

Last week, another earthquake of magnitude 5.6 hit the town of Yesilyurt in Malatya province, killing at least one person and injuring dozens.
