International donors have pledged $4.4 billion dollars in humanitarian aid for Syria and neighboring countries that have sheltered refugees this year.

国际社会已经承诺今年为叙利亚以及周边收容叙利亚难民的国家捐赠44亿美元的人道救援资金。

But the pledges are significantly less than the more than $7 billion the United Nations is seeking.

这个数字远远低于联合国希望筹集的70亿美元。

U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs chief Mark Lowcock said the pledges made at an international donor conference in Brussels are a "good start." He said that based on previous years he expects more money will come in.

联合国人道事务协调员洛考克说,在布鲁塞尔的国际捐赠国大会上捐款承诺是一个良好开端。他说,根据往年的经验,还会有更多的捐赠资金。

Lowcock said several major donors, including the United States, have not yet confirmed their pledges. He said the United States has been providing more than $1 billion a year to Syria and the region in recent years.

洛考克说,包括美国在内的几个捐赠大国都还没有做出承诺。他说,最近数年以来,美国一直每年向叙利亚及中东地区提供至少10亿美元。

Lowcock said the additional money for 2019 is needed for humanitarian purposes in Syria and to assist refugees in nearby countries.

洛考克说,2019年还将需要更多的资金在叙利亚开展人道项目和帮助周边国家收容叙利亚难民。

Some 450,000 people have been killed in Syria since President Bashar al-Assad's 2011 crackdown on protestors calling for his ouster.

自从叙利亚总统阿萨德2011年镇压要求他下台的抗议者后,叙利亚内战中有大约45万人丧生。
