Educating the Next Generation of Nurses in Lebanon

Nursing scholarships provide qualified students in Lebanon with the means to pursue their education. In October 2022, we began the second year of a nursing scholarships program generously funded by Dr. Alfred and Dina Khoury. For the 2022-2023 school year, we expanded the Alfred and Dina Khoury nursing fund to support ten students in total. The fund, called the Nurses for Lebanon program, covers a percentage of the students’ tuition fees until graduation.

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.
