Nobel Peace Prize awarded to UN’s World Food Programme | DW News

The United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP) won the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize. The UN agency is the largest humanitarian organization in the world that addresses hunger and promotes food security. “With this award, we wish to turn the world’s eyes to the millions of people who face hunger and food poverty,” Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the committee, announced in Oslo.

In 2019, the WFP provided assistance to close to 100 million people in 88 countries who are the victims of acute food insecurity and hunger. The Rome-based WFP has also been instrumental in working to fight increased hunger caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Reiss-Andersen noted, adding that food insecurity is also a driving cause of conflict in the world.

  1. Up next, we prize up college drop outs like Gates, for vaccine distributing gmo mosquitos for profit…. what could go wrong?

  2. The world food programme is a sham. I was in Lesotho south africa a number of years ago, a peaceful area where the people self governed and grew just enough crops from abundant fresh water from the mountains that flowed to the village. They had enough food for their families and all was fine. Then the world food programme came and decided they were starving. And they sent tins and cases of food to the village. So they had more food than they needed that year, so the didn’t bother to plant food , the next year , wherever you walked you could see rusty world food programme tins scattered and no one working the land. This is the truth, i was there , i ran and did mountain hikes, and rode horses all over Lesotho, up khotso horse trails, they visit Lesotho every week. Wake up people, its a scam.

  3. So basically awarding someone who has find a way to feed the inormal bread “minorities” so that they can reproduce even furten and cry even more how opressed they whilst destroying anything in their path.
