Dire humanitarian conditions continue in Somalia, as the second consecutive season of below-average rain is again threatening food production. Delayed rains during the peak growing season, between April and June, and parched river beds, have produced harvest levels nearly 70 percent below average in some parts of Somalia, according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization. By December, more than 2 million people are likely to face severe hunger and desperately need emergency food assistance.

索马里的人道主义状况依然严峻,连续两个季度低于平均水平的降雨再次威胁粮食生产。据联合国粮农组织称,在4月至6月的作物生长高峰期,降雨推迟,河床干枯,导致索马里部分地区的收成水平比平均水平低近70%。到12月,超过200万人可能面临严重饥饿,急需紧急粮食援助。

At the same time, approximately 2.6 million people - or one in five Somalis - are internally displaced, while more than 730,000 are seeking refuge in neighboring countries.

同时,大约260万人,即五分之一的索马里人在国内流离失所,超过73万人在邻国寻求避难。

In response to this pending disaster, the US Agency for International Development, or USAID, announced that the United States has provided nearly 257 million dollars in additional humanitarian assistance in Fiscal Year 2019 to help the people in Somalia.

为了应对这一迫在眉睫的灾难,美国国际开发署(USAID)宣布,美国已在2019财年额外提供近2.57亿美元的人道主义援助,以帮助索马里人民。

The United States is the largest donor of humanitarian assistance in Somalia, and this latest announcement brings the total contributed by the American people in Fiscal Year 2019 to nearly 498 million dollars.

美国是索马里人道主义援助的最大捐助国,这一最新声明使美国人民在2019财年的捐款总额达到近4.98亿美元。

The assistance will address life-threatening hunger and acute malnutrition and provide safe water, emergency health care, education, and protection to people affected by ongoing conflict and recurrent drought inside Somalia. It will also provide help to Somali refugees in neighboring countries.

援助将解决危及生命的饥饿和严重营养不良问题,并为索马里境内受持续冲突和经常性干旱影响的人民提供安全饮用水、紧急医疗、教育和保护。援助还将向邻国的索马里难民提供帮助。

The U.S. Government continues to be concerned about the ongoing crisis in Somalia and the lack of sufficient humanitarian funds to address it. Large-scale assistance is urgently needed to prevent conditions in Somalia from worsening.

美国政府继续关注索马里目前的危机,以及缺乏足够的人道主义资金来解决危机。为防止索马里情况恶化,迫切需要大规模援助。

The United Nations estimates that an additional 400 million dollars in humanitarian funding is needed in Somalia through December 2019. The United States is encouraging other donors to increase their contributions to address Somalia's critical humanitarian needs, and to help the most-vulnerable Somalis build resilience to withstand future hardships.

联合国估计,到2019年12月,索马里还需要4亿美元的人道主义资金。美国鼓励其他捐助方增加捐款,以满足索马里的紧急人道主义需求,帮助最脆弱的索马里人建立抵御未来困难的能力。
