World Health Day
On World Health Day 2022, we are taking this opportunity to thank our many medical donation partners. Because of their generosity and the partnerships we have formed, Anera delivers across Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan. From cancer medicines to IV solutions, Anera and our partners bring life-saving medicines and vital healthcare supplies to patients and health facilities who are in desperate need of them.
Check out what we have delivered in just the past 10 months…
World Health Day | Palestine Medical Aid Deliveries
Our amazing medical donations teams in the West Bank and Gaza delivered 54 shipments of medicines and healthcare supplies to 87 clinics and hospitals across Palestine. The shipments contained 823,875 medicine treatments free of charge to vulnerable Palestinian patients and 1,571,579 units of healthcare supplies to help healthcare facilities provide the best service possible.
We also delivered TOMS Shoes to children at Gaza 357 preschools!
World Health Day | Lebanon Medical Aid Deliveries
In Lebanon, Anera’s crack team distributed 38 shipments of medicines and healthcare supplies to 116 healthcare facilities throughout the country. The deliveries provided 2,193,040 units of supplies and 416,913 medicine treatments. Patients at clinics and hospitals across Lebanon benefit from these donations. Patients don’t have to pay for expensive medicines and healthcare facilities can save money on procuring supplies and medicines, and therefore invest more into serving their patients well.

World Health Day 2019
Good health is a critical foundation of any society. But in poor communities in Palestine and Lebanon, families have trouble accessing quality health care. Crumbling buildings, outdated equipment and a shortage of doctors and medicines diminish the standard of care that hospitals and clinics can provide. And restrictions on movement cause patients to rely on small, local clinics with the fewest resources.
Thanks to supporters from all over the world, Anera is able to rebuild, upgrade and improve conditions in hospitals and clinics in Palestine and Lebanon. We distribute millions of dollars worth of vital medicines, equipment, wheelchairs, over-the-counter drugs and health care supplies that would not otherwise be available in the communities where they are needed the most.
Together with people just like you, we’re training families and health care professionals in their communities. We’re teaching healthy habits to children and administering programs that help parents identify symptoms and treatment options for various diseases. Together, we’re building healthy communities through public health education initiatives like summer camps, sports programs and clinic open days.
He who has health has
hope; and he who has
hope has everything.
Anera’s Programs in Palestine and Lebanon benefit people’s health by…
so youth have an outlet for relieving stress and connecting with others through teamwork and other healthy activities.
so patients feel secure in knowing they are in a clean and safe environment that will help them get better.
from hospitals to blood banks, with state-of-the-art equipment, so doctors can feel confident that they have the tools necessary to provide the best care.
like food, water, blankets, hygiene items, clothes and emergency lights during crises, so families who are suffering can have some comfort and stave off illness.
of how good health and nutrition impacts a child’s cognitive and physical development, so preschool teachers and caregivers can provide the best care.
so families don’t over or incorrectly consume antibiotics, painkillers or other drugs that that can have negative effects on health.
so mothers and other caretakers have the tools and knowledge to fight sickness in their families.
so refugee children can get the care they need for their teeth.
so disadvantaged families can get, free of charge, life-saving treatment for chronic and short-term diseases.
to address psychosocial needs, so they can improve the lives of traumatized children, inside and outside the classroom.
so families have access to drinking water and streets aren’t polluted with waste that gets people sick.
Even after this war is over, the decimation of life and infrastructure in Gaza will take many years to overcome.
The miraculous work Anera’s team in Gaza is carrying out every day is fueled by the tremendous outpouring of solidarity and backing by our community.
