Mother and Child
Poverty, inadequate facilities and lack of access to basic health care are just some of the problems mothers and their children face in Palestine and Lebanon. In times of crisis, they often are the most vulnerable.
How does ANERA help women and children?
All of our programs include a strong focus on women and children, from targeted health services to vocational training, childhood development initiatives to special care of those with disabilities. In the refugee camps of Lebanon, ANERA also supports social services that address issues of domestic violence.
By addressing important issues like nutrition, hygiene and access to healthcare, ANERA’s programs aim to protect a generation of children by helping their mothers as well.
With your support, ANERA ensures that thousands of women and children are not needlessly put at risk.
