Armed conflict and hostile environments present unprecedented danger for humanitarian and non-governmental organizations. At the same time, it is in these environments where the world’s most vulnerable populations reside. Today, the changing nature of armed conflicts and asymmetrical warzones mean that attacks on humanitarian staff and NGOs are increasing every year. Unfortunately, this means that less services and aid reach the world’s most vulnerable populations.
Al Thuraya Assist (ATA) is a highly specialized, non-governmental, non-political, and independent organization born to fill the gap in safety, logistics, and implementation that enables aid, resources, and support to reach populations in the world’s most hostile and complex environments. ATA operates as a local implementing partner, ensuring that donor resources reach local populations through innovative and efficient solutions that broaden the space for humanitarian organizations to operate. ATA operates throughout North Africa and the Middle East.
