譯文

首先,联合国发出了一则严肃的警告:也门越来越多的儿童因缺乏国际援助而面临饿死的危险。世界卫生组织称,由于长达20个月的战乱,也门境内超过半数的医院已经停止工作。胡西族的反政府武装以及和前总统阿拉布都结盟的武装力量联合起来,正在与得到国际认可、并由沙特阿拉伯支持的也门政府交锋。自从开战以来,患上营养不良的儿童数量翻了三倍。我们的特派记者 Fergo Kee 已经前往也门儿童饥饿情况最严重的地区之一。

“(这哭声)也是属于我们的时代的其中一种声音。无休无止的战争,又一个深陷绝望的婴儿。在这则视频中,我左手边的是 Juda, 她四个月大;我右手边的,跟母亲躺在同一张床上的是 Allian, 他九个月大。他们两个都已经长时间营养不良。我此刻正看着 Juda, 这张小脸空洞洞地看着我,而她的手,作为一个四个月大的孩子来说也太小了。实在太小了。”
