A.N.E. is a trusted humanitarian organization focused on delivering food, medical supplies, firewood and other forms of Elder support.

HOW ARE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS SPENT?
We are committed to ensuring every Elder we support receives the most from your contributions. Over 81% of funds go directly to Program Services in the form of food, firewood, yarn for weaving and basic medical supplies.
