Last Friday, I participated in a reading for ANERA's annual dinner, reading stories of women who have benefited directly from ANERA's work. It was an incredible reminder that I love to tell stories - real stories of struggle, real stories of hope. Since 1968, ANERA has been improving lives in the Middle East and now is focused on providing aid and humanitarian relief for Palestinian families and poor communities in Gaza, the West Bank and Lebanon.
