PROVIDE JOB TRAINING
Since 1948, some 425,000 Palestinian refugees have registered in Lebanon, more than half of them are living in overcrowded refugee camps that are surrounded by poor Lebanese communities. Now they have been joined by thousands of refugees fleeing the violence in Syria. The list of challenges for these communities is overwhelming — from terrible housing to isolation and discrimination. Basic health, education and social services are lacking and so are the prospects for jobs and a dignified future.
With support from our community of donors, ANERA is doing work that improves so many lives in Lebanon. ANERA provides vocational training for refugee youth to give them the skills they need to get jobs. They also promote healthy habits and responsible use of medicines through our partner community–based organizations so families can take better care of their health and well-being. In addition, ANERA creates sports fields and encourage team activities to bridge divides among conflicting communities. We’re delivering vital medicines to clinics and hospitals and responding in times of crisis with humanitarian relief.
