The World Food Program won the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize.
The Nobel Committee announced the program a few minutes ago as the 111th winner of the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize. The winner was announced at a ceremony at the Nobel Institute in Oslo.
The Nobel Committee has cited the work of the organization in the fight against hunger and helping to improve conditions in war-torn areas as one of the reasons for awarding the prize to the World Food Program.
The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) is the world’s largest human rights organization for food security and hunger. Through its headquarters in Rome and more than 80 offices in other countries, the organization works to help people who are unable to provide enough food for their family members.
It is estimated that the World Food Program helps about 97 million people worldwide each year.
This year, more than 318 organizations, institutions, and individuals have been nominated for this award.
According to the rules, the committee will be able to reveal the nominees for the award only after 50 years.
It should be noted that the value of this award is 10 million Swedish kronor, equivalent to 1.1 million dollars.
