(Nicosia, 26.08.2020) - The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to Turkey for its generous donation of 100,000 US dollars (EUR 84,500). This donation brings the Turkish financial assistance to the CMP to a total of EUR 1,082,500 over the past thirteen years.

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.
