(Nicosia, 01.09.2020) - The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to the Federal Republic of Germany for its generous donation of €100,000. This donation brings the German financial assistance to the CMP to a total of €700,000 since 2006.

This contribution to the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus will support the Committee’s goal of identifying and returning as many remains of missing individuals as possible to bring an end to the uncertainty which has affected so many families for so many years.

So far, 976 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for dignified burials.

The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of the concerned families.
