Anera first started its work in the West Bank in early 1968, soon after the West Bank was occupied by Israel and thereby detached from Jordan. After several years of focusing on the relief needs of refugees from the 1967 war, Anera began in the mid-1970s to focus on job creation and sustainable development projects for all needy West Bank communities.
