This rating was published 04/01/2021 and includes data from FY2020, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Since 1968, 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 Palestine (West Bank and 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 $100.4 million in programs in 2020 alone, and it's how we will keep building better lives until hope finds its way in the Middle East.
