World Refugee Day | A Syrian Refugee Family in Gaza
Description: For #WorldRefugeeDay, our team visited one of the 250 families who fled the Syrian war to find refuge in the most unlikely of places—Gaza. Suad and Mahmoud had a stable and comfortable life before the war. As Syrians of Palestinian descent, they are "twice displaced" and have now found themselves in Gaza. There, they found the situation shocking—rampant poverty, scarce water, little to no electricity, and the constant threat of violence. Today, let's listen to their story, and let their strength inspire us just as the strength of Gaza's people inspired them.

Preschool in Shejaiya, Gaza Gets Rebuilt
Description: The Shejaiya neighborhood in Gaza City was one of the areas worst affected by the war on Gaza in 2014. The few preschools that existed in Shejaiya prior to the war were all destroyed. Children in Gaza need safe places to learn and play, so ANERA decided to embark on the establishment of a new preschool. With support from our donors and Islamic Relief USA, ANERA built five classrooms, a modern playground and water fountains. The school will serve as a center of learning for some 100 children this year, and all of their teachers will be trained and mentored through ANERA's early childhood development program.
