Chimamanda Adichie Gets Recognition For Fight against Hunger



Action Against Hunger, an international Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), has honoured foremost Nigerian novelist and international acclaimed fiction writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, for her contributions towards eliminating hunger and malnutrition.

Adichie was presented with the award at the organization’s 19th annual gala, which took place in New York City last Tuesday, October 30, 2018.

Explaining why Chimamanda was selected as the 2018 recipient, the international NGO said she is part of a large community of people who leverage their visibility and voices on behalf of others in the fight against hunger.

“Chimamanda Adichie was selected to accept the 2018 Action Against Hunger Humanitarian Award because we are inspired by her unwavering support of women and refugees. As a transformational storyteller who brings diversity, complexity, and humanity to all her professional projects, ranging from best-selling books to TED talks, her work aligns perfectly with Action Against Hunger’s mission and vision,” the NGO said. Past recipients of the Action Against Hunger Award include the late President Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Oprah Winfrey.
