이스마엘 베아, 동아프리카 지역 지원요청 영상

2011.11.04


With an urgent appeal by UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors Yuna Kim, Serena Williams, Ishmael Beah and Angelique Kidjo, UNICEF is reminding the global community that the crisis in the Horn of Africa is far from over.

So far over 13 million people in East Africa have been affected by the severe drought. Without immediate intervention an estimated 750,000 Somalis face imminent starvation.  Tens of thousands of people have already died.

Former child soldier Ishmael Beah makes it very clear:
SOUNDBITE, Ishmael Beah, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador
“Every day thousands of children are dying in the Horn of Africa.  An entire generation will be lost if we don’t so something –now”

As a response to the ongoing crisis, UNICEF has massively scaled up its operations: Since July alone over 62.000 severely and moderately malnourished children in Somalia have been receiving life-saving support UNICEF has also provided water and immunization and ensured that children are safe

Yet, an estimated 4 million people in Somalia are still in dire need of aid. UN officials fear that food scarcity in the south may get worse.

With no major harvests expected for the rest of the year, the crisis is sure to get worse. The time to act is now.

-SOUNDBITE, Yuna Kim, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador
“Time is of the essence.”

- SOUNDBITE, Angelique Kidjo, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador
“Go to UNICEF.org to help”

-SOUNDBITE, Serena Williams, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador
“This crisis isn’t over”

For the remainder of the year, UNICEF is looking for an additional 61 million dollars to support the response in Somalia  alone.

And despite a recent pledge of an additional $218 million for new humanitarian aid a lot more remains to be done.
