Australia donates 7,000 Euro to CMP
(Nicosia, 18 May 2017) – The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to Australia for its donation of EUR 7,000 made today. This brings the Australian financial assistance to the CMP to a total of EUR 13,300 over the past ten years.
This donation to the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus will contribute to the Committee’s goal of identifying and returning as many remains of missing individuals as possible in order to bring an end to the uncertainty which has affected so many families for so many years.
So far, 757 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to the families for a dignified burial.
The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of the concerned families.
