For operating support. Survivor Corps (Formerly Landmine Survivors Network) is a global network of people helping each other to overcome the effects of war and violence. Beginning in 2002, the Landmine Survivors Network expanded its Raising the Voices Program that empowered landmine victims to become their own advocates by providing education and training on the Landmine Ban Treaty, basic international human rights documents, and the UN Standard Rules on the Equalization of Opportunities for Persons with Disability. The organization also brought other disability groups together to work as a coalition to protect the rights of people with disabilities.
