Nobel Peace Prize – level 3

15-10-2020 07:00

The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the United Nations´ (UN) World Food Program this year.

The organization works to fight hunger in conflict zones, and last year, it gave assistance to 100 million people in 88 countries. Food security is a critical issue for many communities, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, and the UN acts as a driving force to stop the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict. The World Food Program is the world´s largest humanitarian organization, and program officials said that the organization shares the award with all its partners who put their lives on the line every day.

In 2019, 135 million people suffered from acute hunger, which is the highest number in many years.

Difficult words: driving force (someone or something that has the power to make things happen), on the line (at risk), acute (extremely great or serious).
