CHESTERFIELD (KMOX) - Sometime this month, or perhaps early next month, west county-based Wings of Hope will learn if it’s the winner of a 2011 Nobel Peace Prize.

Organization President Doug Clements learned of the nomination earlier this year.

“I’m trying to remind people that, generally, individuals win this. Organizations only win this after they’ve been nominated several times, and we’ve only been nominated one time,” he said Monday night. “This is our first year.”

One of the reasons the charity was nominated is because it is non-religious and has no political agenda, Clements said.

The airborne charity’s latest endeavours include sending more volunteers into the Congo and Tanzania and helping health care professionals get into Paraguay.

It was honored by the Town and Country Board of Aldermen with a resolution for its work and Nobel nomination.
