세계식량계획-WFP는, 현재 부족한 3천백만달러의 기금이 조성되지않는다면, 수백만명의 아프가니스탄 주민들이 굶주리게되고, 나라가 더욱 혼란에 빠져들 것이라고 말했습니다.

 WFP는 아프가니스탄에 대한 식량지원 게획이 올해 남은 기간동안에도 계속될 수 있도록 도와달라고 기부국들에게 호소했습니다.

The World Food Program says millions of Afghans could go hungry and the already troubled nation could be further destabilized unless it can make up a 31-million-dollar funding shortage.

The United Nations agency is appealing today (Thursday) to donor nations to ensure that food aid programs in Afghanistan can continue for the rest of this year.

Without the funds, the W.F.P. says, two-and-a-half million Afghans could face severe food shortages during severe winter weather.

Beyond humanitarian consequences, the food agency's director in Asia (Anthony Banbury) says a reduction in aid would breed insecurity in Afghanistan, nearly five years after the Taleban regime was toppled from power.
