Con­nect­ing Com­mu­ni­ties Sup­port Ti­gris River Flotilla: Iraq


Na­ture Iraq, to­gether with the Na­ture Iraq Foun­da­tion and the Water­keep­ers Iraq, will recre­ate a jour­ney down the Ti­gris River, start­ing in South- East­ern Turkey, trav­el­ling through Iraq. In hon­our of the river’s cul­tural her­itage, the team will be us­ing tra­di­tional ves­sels, like the Tarada, Kalak and Guffa, to doc­u­ment and gen­er­ate aware­ness to­wards the threats fac­ing the waters of the Ti­gris ~ as well as the unique cul­tural her­itage of Me­sopotamia. Thu­raya will be spon­sor­ing the team with the Thu­raya IP+ broad­band ter­mi­nal as well as air­time to help the teams stay con­nected on the jour­ney. T. San­ford Jewett, vice pres­i­dent of mar­ket­ing at Thu­raya said: “Wa­ter­ways and rivers are of­ten out of reach or un­served by ter­res­trial com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works. The project un­der­scores our com­mit­ment to­wards pro­vid­ing in­no­va­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion equip­ment for peo­ple who need to stay con­nected in re­mote places.”
