阿富汗饥荒加剧 Afghanistan's Worsening Hunger Crisis

  

  2013年9月23日,阿富汗赫尔曼德省,八个月大的Samiullah因为营养不良换上了消瘦症,看起来像个小老头。他妈妈Islam Bibi抱着他,今年15岁。

  face looks like that of a wrinkled old man because skin hangs on it so loosely, is held by his mother Islam Bibi, 15, from Marjah district, as they receive treatment on a plastic mattress in an administrative office due to overcrowding in the Inpatient Therapeutic Feeding Centre (ITFC) wards, at the Bost Hospital, a Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF) assisted hospital, in Lashkar Gah, in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, Sept. 23, 2013.

  阿富汗儿童营养不良的情况越来越严重。根据联合国数据,与2012年相比,儿童营养不良的登记数量增加了50%。造成该状况的原因说法不一。大部分医生和救助人员认为是战争的难民迁移。有些人相信儿童病例的增加部分来讲是个好现象,说明更多的阿富汗人知道他们可以得到救助。虽然数年来西方国家介入,对阿富汗数十亿美元的人道援助,这里儿童健康不单单是个问题,还呈现恶化趋势。

  Afghanistan is experiencing a rise in malnutrition cases across the country. The Bost hospital in Lashkar Gah, the capital of war-torn Helmand Province have been registering significant increases in severe malnutrition among children. Countrywide, such cases have increased 50 percent or more compared with 2012, according to U.N. figures. Reasons for the increase remain uncertain, or in dispute. Most doctors and aid workers agree that continuing war and refugee displacement are contributing factors. Some believe that the growing number of child patients may be at least partly a good sign, as more poor Afghans are hearing about treatment available to them. Despite years of Western involvement and billions of dollars in humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, children’s health is not only still a problem, but also worsening.
