In a region where conflict and humanitarian crises can happen at any time, ANERA is always ready to step in to ease people’s suffering and help them return to normal. Our staff members in the Middle East live in the communities they serve and can quickly get a picture of what needs exist in an emergency situation.
During and after the 2006 war in Lebanon, the bombardments of Gaza in 2009 and 2012, and extended closures in the West Bank, ANERA has provided emergency relief in the form of food and medicines, renovations to buildings and water networks, and psychosocial help.
