Partner with Anera

Through your generous donations to the Humanity First Palestine relief appeal, HFUSA is partnering with the nonprofit organization Anera to provide immediate medical relief in Palestine.  

Medical care for over 13,900 adults and children 

With HFUSA support, Anera has operated rotating free health clinics in 10 UN shelters in southern and central Gaza including Khan Younis and Rafah, Palestine. This is an area of the Gaza Strip hosting many internally displaced people. The 48 clinic days treated over 6,800 children and 7,100 adults for critical and chronic conditions, including pregnant and lactating women.

Anera coordinates with the UN health cluster and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency to integrate health clinics into ongoing response efforts. The clinics hire local, vetted professionals who provide urgent, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed medical care. 

Anera is non-political, non-religious, and is one of the largest American nonprofits working solely in the Middle East for more than 55 years.

Partner with HF UK

Humanity First USA and Humanity First UK are partnering to provide emergency supplies to people in Palestine.

Essential food staples of rice, flour, tuna, beans, lentils, and water are critically needed. Warm jackets, blankets, and tents will protect against the ongoing cold weather and lack of sufficient shelter that many people are facing at the start of winter. Humanity First is coordinating with local authorities and international organizations to ensure an effective response.

Two Humanity First volunteers with blue vests stand in a space in front of two-story building with open air hallways and railings. In the space are makeshift tents and people standing or walking through.


Humanity First has positively impacted countless lives, and the inspiring stories of those who have been helped continue to spread hope and compassion.
