Humanitarian Aid for Ethiopia

给予埃塞俄比亚人道主义援助

Ethiopia has been suffering the effects of a devastating series of droughts,which began three years ago when the El Nino weather pattern caused higher temperatures in this country of 100 million people.While an above average rainy season this year is expected to help improve agriculture in parts of the country,the damage done by several consecutive failed rainy seasons has been significant,resulting in widespread crop failures and devastating loss of livestock and leading to successive humanitarian disasters.

埃塞俄比亚一直在遭受一系列灾难性干旱的影响,干旱始于三年前厄尔尼诺气候导致这个拥有1亿人口的国家气温上升。虽然今年的雨季好于往年平均水平,希望有助于改善该国部分地区的农业,但连续几年表现欠佳的雨季所造成的损失是巨大的,造成作物广泛歉收和牲畜的毁灭性损失,并导致连续的人道主义灾难。

Further compounding the situation is a large-scale displacement of approximately one million people since Apri lin the West-Guji and Gedeo zones of the Oromiya Region and Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples Region, respectively.This newly displaced populations is in addition to the 1.6 million.Ethiopians already pushed from their homes by conflict or drought,with large-scale displacement occurring along the border of the Oromiya and Somali regions,who need immediate, vital humanitarian assistance.

使情况更加复杂的是,大规模的人口流离失所,自4月以来,在奥罗米亚地区的西古吉和基迪欧区以及南方人民民族州分别有大约100万人流离失所。这是之前160万(流离失所的)人口之外新增的。由于冲突或干旱,埃塞俄比亚人民已经被迫离开家园,奥罗米亚和索马里地区的边界发生了大规模流离失所的情况,这些地区即刻需要至关重要的人道主义援助。

Today, as a result of these conditions, nearly 8 million are facing hunger, particularly in Oromiya and southern Somali regions.In late July, the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, announced an additional 170 million dollars in humanitarian assistance to support the people of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.

今天,由于这些情况,近800万人面临饥饿,特别是在奥罗米亚和索马里南部地区。7月下旬,美国国际开发署(USAID)宣布提供另外1.7亿美元的人道主义援助。以支持埃塞俄比亚联邦民主共和国人民。

This new funding brings the total U.S. humanitarian contribution for Ethiopia to more than 802 million dollars since October 2016.The funds will go toward emergency food and nutrition assistance, life-saving medical care, shelter, and safe drinking water,as well as programs to improve sanitation and hygiene programs to stop the spread of preventable diseases.This assistance will provide vital humanitarian aid to millions of Ethiopians trying to recover from the shocks suffered since 2016,as well as to refugees who are seeking shelter in Ethiopia.

加上这一新的资金支持,自2016年10月以来,美国为埃塞俄比亚提供的人道主义援助总额已超过8.02亿美元。这些资金将用于紧急食品和营养援助、拯救生命的医疗保健、住所和安全饮用水,以及改善清洁卫生项目,以阻止可预防疾病的传播。这将为数百万埃塞俄比亚人民提供至关重要的人道主义援助,他们正努力从2016年以来遭受的冲击中恢复过来,同时在埃塞俄比亚寻求庇护的难民也会得到帮助。

This assistance will meet the immediate needs of those displaced, keeping them healthy so that they can return home safely and voluntarily,resume productive lives, and participate in the process of addressing the root causes of the conflict,said USAID Mission Director to Ethiopia, Leslie Reed.The United States urges additional contributions from the Government of Ethiopia and the community of nations to meet the needs of vulnerable Ethiopians.

“这一援助将满足流离失所者的迫切需要,使他们保持健康,以便他们能够安全自愿地返回家园,恢复生产生活,并参与解决冲突根源的进程,”美国国际开发署驻埃塞俄比亚特派团主任Leslie Reed如是说。美国敦促埃塞俄比亚政府和国际社会提供更多的捐助,以满足这些埃塞俄比亚弱势群体的需要。
