This year Survivor Corps honored four recipients with the Niarchos Prize for Survivorship. The 2009 honorees, representatives of many facets of survivorship, hailed from Rwanda, Israel, Palestine, and the United States. They were presented with the awards on April 29th during the Niarchos Awards Luncheon. The event inspires survivors of war and violence throughout the world and promotes awareness of conflict and survivors’ efforts to break cycles of violence.
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation has supported Survivor Corps since the early years of the organization’s existence.
