For the Niarchos Survivorship Prize, which recognizes an individual survivor, a group that works with survivors, and a “celebrity” who has helped to heighten awareness of the issues addressed by Survivor Corps. Survivor Corps (Formerly Landmine Survivors Network) is a global network of people helping each other to overcome the effects of war and violence. Landmine Survivors Network was founded in 1997 by Ken Rutherford and Jerry White (both landmine victims) to ensure rehabilitative care for landmine victims and to help ban mines. The organization\'s work has expanded considerably over the years and it now operates programs in Bosnia-Herzegovina, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Jordan, Mozambique, Vietnam and Colombia. Beyond these specific locations, its programs have reached survivors in 43 of the 87 most mine-affected countries and regions of the world.
