Working with Farmers
Farming has been a way of life in the Middle East for thousands of years, feeding families and generating work for local communities all over the region.
Today, it is one of the few ways for Palestinians to make a living in an uncertain political and economic climate. But, the shortage of water in the region and decades of outdated cultivation techniques challenge today’s farmers. Anera works in rural communities on a small-scale and sustainable level. We install irrigation systems and build farm-to-market roads, wholesale markets and greenhouses. We support farming cooperatives that share resources and help farmers talk to each other about what works.
Your support is helping revive Gaza agriculture by leveling and plowing damaged fields, installing irrigation pipes and providing olive trees and vegetable saplings to hundreds of families affected by the war and poverty. In the Palestinian refugee camps of Lebanon, your donations have fund greening efforts that bring a little cheer to concrete-filled neighborhoods. In the West Bank, you've helped set up the first large-scale facility in Palestine that treats waste water for irrigating farmlands.
