Thuraya and Al Aan TV, the UAE-based TV channel, have joined forces to spotlight the plight of famine-stricken area of Somalia and re-focus international attention on Somali community. About 60 percent of the people in Somalia have been inaccessible to aid, and those are just the people in temporary camps.

"We have a strong partnership with Al Aan TV, whom we openly admire for their continued efforts to highlight human interest stories. Somalia is a vast, barren country with a heart-breaking story to tell, we wanted to ensure Al Aan had the means to get the story out. Our Thuraya IP solution enables them to broadcast live from even the most remote location and provides the platform to re-focus international attention on Somali community," said Thuraya's Vice President, Corporate '&' Marketing Communications, Ebrahim K. Ebrahim.

On a similar note Ms. Nisreen Sadek, News Projects Manager of Al Aan TV said, "We are committed to proving leading and breaking news to our audience, we ensure that we are well-geared to stream stories from all parts of the globe and that is why we selected Thuraya IP as our main satellite broadband solution. The compact, portable and user-friendly solution will enable us to show the reality on the ground in Somalia without delay to our studios, in the hope of bringing attention to our audience so that they participate in saving the lives of those in Somalia." - Emirates News Agency, WAM
