US donates $250,000 to CMP

The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) on Tuesday thanked the US for a donation of $250,000 (€223,000) in support of the work on locating the remains of missing persons.

The CMP said the contribution was being provided through the UNDP-Action for Cooperation and Trust (ACT) Programme. “This brings the United States’ financial assistance to the CMP to a total of €724,800 over the past ten years,” it said.

“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,” it added.

 So far, 632 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for a dignified burial.

 The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of families of missing persons.
