With his organization he has exceptionally broad reach and pulled off a major miracle by shipping food to Rafah last week. He clearly doesn't take no for an answer.

And I believe he lives by phrases like...

"It's not an obstacle, it's an opportunity."

He definitely deserves it!!

WCK’s Juan Camilo is in Larnaca, Cyprus where almost 200 tons of food are loaded on the @openarms_fund boat ready to sail for Gaza. Alongside the @UAEAid & @CyprusMFA, we’re ensuring as much aid as possible reaches Palestinian communities facing starvation.

"Is there a category for him in the Nobel Peace Prize?
Wed Mar 13, 2024, 01:08 AM
I don't know exactly which group would nominate him. How does that work? He deserves it. He doesn't just talk the talk, he walks the walk. I started watching him in 2008 when Anthony Bourdain went and cooked with him at various locations. He is the real deal, nothing phony about him. He is like the anti-HOOTERS chef/restaurateur. Do those sexist pseudo restaurants exist in 2024? Does Boebert own one?

Sean Penn also has done great work and Anthony Bourdain showcased him as well."
