OSLO, Norway (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – In 2020, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the World Food Programme (WFP) “for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.”
Who will receive the prestigious prize in 2021?
The Philippines could very well score its first Nobel Peace Prize ever this year, if the Nobel Selection Committee decides to reprise its recognition that combatting hunger is an all-important road to peace and prosperity.
Vice President Leni Robredo has been nominated for the prize this year, thanks to her advocacy on behalf of the poor and hungry. The nomination highlighted her most recent efforts to distribute spaghetti to the less fortunate of her countrymen.
“Her spaghetti distribution shows the that little acts, no matter how they are seen as propaganda and photo ops by her critics, can go a long way to achieve world peace,” the nominated stated.
