(Nicosia, 29 December 2022) – The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) received a donation of €25,000 from the Government of Ireland on 27 December 2022. This contribution brings Ireland’s financial assistance to the CMP to a total of €425,000 since 2006.
In 2023, these funds will support the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus with its goal to end the uncertainty which has affected the families for so many years.
So far, 1,028 missing persons from both Cypriot communities have been identified and returned to their families for dignified burials.
The CMP relies on donor support to implement its bi-communal project that alleviates the suffering of the concerned families.
