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.
