악화 일로의 케냐 기근 사태

2006.11.16
Waiting for rain, waiting for food and waiting for help. Millions of people in Kenya are facing disease and starvation as the year long drought continues. 1.2 million have already receiving food aid but that number could rise to 2.5 million by the end of this year. Previous UNICEF estimates of the number of children suffering severe malnutrition have already doubled. It’s thought that some 40 thousand children and women now need immediate life saving assistance. CLIP Heimo Laakkonen, UNICEF Kenya Representative: “I would like people to really listen to the reports coming out of those districts, the affected areas, and start responding – start helping those agencies, the government and other external agencies who are working in those difficult conditions.” The arid plains are strewn with the carcasses of cattle. Cattle is essential to the survival of people here, but farmers have lost up to 40 per cent of their livestock and the next few months could bring further catastrophic losses. CLIP Abdi Rizak Ahmed, Deputy Drought Manager, Wajir District: “As we go towards April, the situation is going to deteriorate further and further and further. We are projecting that there may be an estimated loss of up to 70 or 80 per cent of the livestock – 80 per cent of the livestock come April!” UNICEF supplementary feeding programmes alongside basic food distribution have helped to reduce some child deaths – but diseases such as measles and diarrhoea are a constant threat. UNICEF is scaling up its efforts to help the government prevent and manage these and other illnesses and targeted feeding programmes will also increase. Around 8 million dollars is needed for emergency health care and nutrition - but there’s likely to be a shortfall of more than three and a half million dollars. As temperatures rise, so does the scale of this crisis. Without urgent aid it will claim the lives of many more. This is Jane O’Brien reporting for UNICEF. For every child, advance humanity. *** Asset Name : UNICEF: Kenya drought situation worsens Asset Duration: 02 min 29 secs Shoot City: Wajir Shoot Country: Kenya Shoot Date: Dec 28 2005
