Ireland donates 25,000 Euro to the CMP
(Nicosia, 5 October 2016) – The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to Ireland for its donation of EUR 25,000 made today. This brings the Irish financial assistance to the CMP to a total of EUR 300,000 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, 699 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.
