葉門等四國陷饑荒 逾2000萬人待援

 More than 20 million people in Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and Nigeria are facing starvation. The UN officials have warned that the world is threatened by the largest humanitarian crisis since the UN was founded in 1945.
 The officials say the four countries need money immediately and unlimited humanitarian aid "to avert a catastrophe." To be precise, $4.4 billion (about NTD140.8 billion) is needed by July.
 In Somalia, women and children walk for weeks in search of food and water. In war-hit Yemen, two-thirds of the people need aid. In northeastern Nigeria, more than 2.6 million have been driven from their homes by an Islamic extremist group. In South Sudan, more than one million children are estimated to be acutely malnourished.
 
 葉門、南蘇丹、索馬利亞、奈及利亞四國,共有 超過兩千萬人陷入饑荒。聯合國官員提出警告,這 是聯合國1945年成立以來,全球面臨的最大人道危 機。
 聯合國官員表示,這四個國家需要立即挹注資金 及不受限的人道援助,才能「逆轉浩劫」。精準的 說,七月之前44 億美元(約新臺幣1408 億元)必 須到位。
 在索馬利亞,婦孺必須徒步數週覓食、尋找飲用 水。在內戰頻仍的葉門,三分之二的人口需要援助 。在奈及利亞東北部,超過260 萬人被伊斯蘭極端 組織逐出家園。在南蘇丹,估計超過100 萬的兒童 嚴重營養不良。
