The World Food Program of the United Nations has been rewarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize for its attempts to fight with world-spread starvation during the ongoing global epidemic.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee adduced the work of the program as a part of their efforts in establishing peace in Africa, Asia and South America, emphasizing that food security is more important and evasive than ever during the COVID-19 upheaval.

Berit Reiss-Andersen, the Nobel committee chair person stated- “Till we get an access to a medical vaccine, food will serve as the best vaccine against the outbreak,” said.

The prize quotation considered the World Food Program’s influence in circumstances including the civil war in Syria; the nearly six-year bloodshed between Saudi and Iranian proxies in Yemen; differences in South Sudan and Democratic Republic of Congo, and failure of the crops elsewhere in Africa.

The Nobel committee also mourned the loss of esteem and impact by the UN and international organizations generally: “Multilateralism seems to be lacking sense of respect now-a-days,” Reiss-Andersen declared.

This propensity has hastened during the Trump administration tenure, even though the United States resumes being the largest single benefactor to the World Food Program, conferring 43% of its budget.
