Health Care Facilities in Disrepair
The problems at clinics and hospitals in Palestine and Lebanon are widespread, from peeling paint and water damage to outdated equipment and a shortage of doctors.
These factors diminish the quality of care that health care centers can provide. With limited equipment and personnel, people needing care often have to wait in long lines or do without treatment altogether. These problems have life and death implications for the community members served.
Overcrowding, low funds and political instability are some of the main issues that affect the quality of health care facilities in Gaza, the West Bank and the refugee camps of Lebanon. Bombs and other effects of war often leave behind damaged health care facilities.
Improved Conditions and Capacity
With help from people like you, ANERA builds and upgrades clinics and hospitals, improving health care services for the poorest communities and people with disabilities.
We also give technical guidance and medical supplies that support their work and ease financial burdens. From stocking the Gaza Blood Bank with donated blood bags to opening the first-ever health care clinic in a small West Bank town, ANERA uses an all-encompassing approach to ensure that communities in need get good quality health care.
ANERA’s infrastructure work also has improved livelihoods for thousands of Palestinians and other local community members. The areas where we work tend to have high unemployment, and our projects constructing health care facilities help feed and support thousands of families seeking much-needed resources.
Al-Walajeh lies within the West Bank's Area C, where any construction needs to be permitted by the Israeli government. That's why our construction of its first-ever clinic is so important.
