2019 American Near East Refugee Aid Annual Dinner
Learn, Create, Grow: How Hope Finds A Way

For 51 years, Anera has helped refugees and others hurt by conflicts in the Middle East live with dignity and purpose.
Anera, which has no political or religious affiliation, works on the ground with partners in the West Bank, Gaza, Lebanon and Jordan. We mobilize resources for immediate emergency relief and for sustainable, long-term health, education, and economic development. Our staff serve in their communities, navigating the politics that constrict progress to get help where it’s needed most.
That’s how Anera delivered more than $69.8 million in programs in 2018 alone, and it’s how we will keep building better lives until hope finds its way in the Middle East.
The Arab-Israeli War of 1967 left hundreds of thousands of Palestinians homeless and impoverished. As various international entities struggled to respond, a small group of concerned Americans began working to provide immediate assistance to the victims of the conflict.
The result was the creation of American Near East Refugee Aid (Anera).
From these modest beginnings, Anera began decades of committed work responding to the critical needs of the Palestinian people and others caught in regional conflicts. For more about the earliest days, read “How Anera Came To Be” and “Recollections of Anera’s Early Years.”
