As owners of our own NGO called Al Thuraya Assist as well as being a major partner of the development sector, we work extensively to enable and support programs globally in a highly cost-effective manner. Al Thuraya Consultancy draws on the depth of our local insight, experience, contacts and resources to secure and facilitate our clients’ essential operations in austere locations where host nation security forces and community-based security solutions cannot be relied upon. Our ongoing projects include the provision of secure accommodation and life support services, protective security, training and development and security risk management. In one recent example of our services, we evacuated over 160 clients from a conflict scenario in Yemen without incident or harm.
