This year’s Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the United Nations World Food Programme for its efforts to fight hunger and to prevent the use of starvation as a weapon of war.

“With this year’s award, the Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to turn the eyes of the world towards the millions of people who suffer from or face the threat of hunger,” Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee said from Stockholm.

“The World Food Programme plays a key role in multilateral cooperation on making food security an instrument of peace and has made a strong contribution toward mobilising UN member states to combat the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.”

The World Food Programme is one of the largest aid organisations in the world.

Its head, David Beasley said, “Holy mackerel. It’s the first time in my life I’ve been without words.”
