Qatar plans to send 10,000 cabins and caravans from last year’s World Cup to provide shelter for survivors of the Turkish earthquakes, officials said.
The Gulf nation says it had always planned to donate the mobile homes. They were needed to help house some of the 1.4 million fans who descended on the small country during soccer’s biggest tournament.
The first batch of 10,000 mobile homes pledged by Qatar for earthquake-hit regions in Turkey has reached the country.
An initial batch of 350 structures was shipped out on Sunday, the Qatar Fund for Development said.
According to photos being released online, the container homes offer comfortable living space, with the interiors resembling a hotel room and featuring, twin beds and some furniture.
