The United Nations estimates that half of Somalia's population, about 7.7 million people, will require humanitarian assistance and protection in 2022.

联合国估计,在2022年,索马里一半的人口(约770万人)将需要人道主义援助和保护。

The U.N. is asking for $1.5 billion to assist 5.5 million of those considered most at-risk.

联合国正寻求筹集15亿美元,以援助550万被认为处境最危险的人。

Many years of conflict, severe weather, disease and increasing poverty have badly harmed the lives of people in Somalia.

多年的冲突、恶劣的天气、疾病和日益严重的贫困严重损害了索马里人民的生活。

Many are facing severe hunger.

许多人正面临严重的饥饿。

The country faces a famine because of a lack of rainfall for a third year straight.

由于连续三年缺雨,这个国家面临饥荒。

Adam Abdelmoula is the U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator for Somalia.

亚当·阿卜杜勒-穆拉是联合国索马里人道主义协调员。

He says 80 percent of the country is affected by drought.

他说,索马里80%的地区受到干旱的影响。

He told VOA that 169,000 people have left their homes in search of water, food, and land for their farm animals.

他告诉VOA,16.9万人离开了家园去寻找水、食物和饲养牲畜的土地。

"When I visited the countryside, I saw many dead animals," he said.

他说:“当我去乡下的时候,我看到了很多死掉的动物。”

"The people I met with…and the elderly people I met with, told me they had not seen this level of drought since the 1970s and 80s."

“我遇到的人……我遇到的老人告诉我,他们自20世纪七八十年代以来从未见过如此严重的干旱。”

Abdelmoula said Somalia has been overlooked because of developing crises in other parts of the world, especially in the Tigray area of northern Ethiopia and in Afghanistan.

阿卜杜勒-穆拉说,因为世界其他地区的危机正在发展,特别是埃塞俄比亚北部的提格雷地区和阿富汗,所以索马里一直被忽视。

He added that the international community would be making a big mistake were it to overlook Somalia.

他还说,如果国际社会忽视了索马里,那就大错特错了。

Abdelmoula said that in the 1990s, Somalia faced similar mass migration, starvation and famine.

阿卜杜勒-穆拉说,在20世纪90年代,索马里面临着类似的大规模移民、饥饿和饥荒。

He also noted the rise of the al-Shabab militant group, political unrest and widespread illegal trade during that time.

他还指出,在那期间,青年党激进组织崛起、政治动荡加剧、非法贸易现象猖獗。

Recent estimates suggest that drought could force up to 1.4 million Somalis to leave their homes in the next six months.

最近的估计表明,干旱可能会迫使多达140万索马里人在未来六个月内背井离乡。

That number is addition to the nearly 3 million people already displaced by conflict and natural disasters.

这一数字不包括已经因冲突和自然灾害而流离失所的近300万人。

Abdelmoula says at least 1.2 million children under the age of five are likely to be severely malnourished in 2022.

阿卜杜勒-穆拉说,在2022年,至少有120万5岁以下的儿童可能会严重营养不良。

He warns that about 300,000 children are at risk of dying without immediate assistance.

他警告称,如果不立即采取援助措施,大约会有30万儿童面临死亡的危险。
