Ireland donates 25,000 Euro to the CMP
(Nicosia, 20 January 2020) – The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to Ireland for its generous donation of EUR 25,000 made today. This brings the Irish financial assistance to the CMP to a total of EUR 375,000 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, 969 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.
