President & Board Chair Letter
ANERA’s focus is always on people, not politics. It’s a good formula, especially given the charged region where we work. From farms to schools, people in Lebanon and Palestine were touched by ANERA projects in 2016.
We felt great pride when our innovative reuse of treated wastewater in the West Bank successfully irrigated more than 200 family farms, each yielding six harvests of alfalfa fodder per year.
In Gaza, our engineers cheered when the first valves connected thousands of families to daily water in their kitchens and bathrooms. They did this at a time when even pipes were tough to purchase.
In the refugee camps of Lebanon, tensions run high among teenagers who are struggling to work or stay in school. Our non-formal education programs make learning accessible and the sports facilities we construct bridge gaps between communities and give young people an outlet to blow off steam.
In violent and unstable times, ANERA is there, delivering the projects you make possible. No matter what.
With pride in our staff,
Joseph P. Saba, Chairman of the Board
Bill Corcoran, President & CEO
