ABOUT

Responding to Crises

Gaza has endured 10 years of closure and three bombing campaigns that left lives and livelihoods in ruins.

Lebanon's Palestinian camps are overwhelmed by the arrival of tens of thousands of impoverished, traumatized refugees from Syria. West Bank communities are fractured by military checkpoints and a 420-mile separation wall.

Families are caught in the middle of a situation they can’t control. And ANERA is always there to step in to ease their suffering. Our staff have a tried-and-true system for getting people and communities what they need most: medicines, food packages, clothes, blankets, hygiene supplies and more.

In times of crisis, ANERA's staff on the ground delivers medicines, food, water and more.

When schools, hospitals and farms are damaged by bombs or natural disasters, ANERA rebuilds and restores them. We also help families rebuild their livelihoods—another casualty of conflict and crisis—through small business loans, job creation and job skills training.

ANERA’s psychosocial activities give children, who are particularly vulnerable to the psychological effects of war, a chance to release their anxieties through guided activities like drawing, dancing and acting. ANERA also works with caregivers to provide better support to children and to cope with traumas they themselves suffered.
