Sadly, too many of the communities where ANERA works lack the infrastructure for people to live happy, healthy and normal lives. Roads are run down, community centers are struggling and there are barely any places for families to enjoy their time together outside the home.
ANERA serves communities
People like you make it possible for Palestinian refugees and other poor communities to enjoy public places without worrying about their health and safety. Together we connect communities to each other, building new roads and repairing old and dangerous ones. We build parks and playgrounds to give children and their families a safe place to escape the often harsh conditions they must endure. We build community centers and organize events that provide social, professional and educational support to hundreds of thousands of people across the region.
ANERA’s work with and for communities provides sustainable development of assets and services that benefit youth and adults alike.
