Our story

Based in the heart of Doha, Qatar, HAMMALY was inspired by the true Hammalis of Souq Waqif.

A film by: Amal Al-Muftah

We aspire to embrace the profession and traditions of the Hammalis, to connect you with today’s Hammalis aided with technology, to help you complete tasks, find local services, or hire flexible staff in an instant.

Porters of the Middle East

The Hammalis are the migrant porters of the Arab world. Much like the mountain guides in Nepal, the Hammalis are considered experts in their profession. They are known for their skill, knowledge of the land and local culture, and instincts to carry out tasks assigned to them, intuitively tackling any challenges along the way.


A Hammali leaves his country, to pursue a better life in another.
A Hammali made his life harder, to make someone else’s easier.
A Hammali left his family, to serve another.
